Infant and Mother in Crisis Found by HPD K9

K9 Assists Neighboring Community


- Around 0845 Jan 2, 2022, K9 Gibbs and Sgt Hodgen were called to assist the Hancock NH Police Department in searching for an adult female in crisis that had gone into the woods with her infant child. Temperatures were cold and rainy at this time and there was a legitimate concern for their welfare and safety. K9 Gibbs led a search team about 1.5 miles through the woods until he located the mother and child in the brush near a swamp, about 1 hour later.

Fortunately, the mother and infant were safe and unharmed. Both the mother and infant were brought out to the main road to be evaluated by the Hancock Fire Department. The mother and infant were provided services that they needed and we are very grateful for this outcome! The search team Included assisting officers from Hancock, Greenfield, and Antrim.
