A grueling nine-hour search for a missing elderly man in New Jersey came to an end last week when his dog led an off-duty police officer to the owner.

Fred Rapp, 78, was reported missing to Manchester Police on Nov. 27. Officers started a search for Rapp that evening, but were unable to contact him.

Using GPS data from Rapp’s cell phone, police were able to locate him somewhere within the wooded areas around NJ State Route 37 between Toms River and Berkley Township, which includes the 251-acre Crossley Preserve.

During the search, police said they used a humvee, a drone and a newly-acquired ATV to locate Rapp, but all of these methods were unsuccessful.

At 5:45 a.m. the next morning, Rapp was found by an off-duty Sgt. named Charles Brooks, who was hunting in the area.
