VIDEO: K-9 unit finds missing woman in Hillsborough County woods

Tampa, Fla. (WFLA) – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office released body cam video on Monday showing K9 locating a missing woman in a jungle of Thonotosassa Sunday.

The sheriff’s office said it was called to Bonnet Hole Drive after a woman in her 60s disappeared from her home Saturday afternoon.

Delegates said the woman, who suffers from dementia, disappeared after she left her home.

Delegates searched the area and deployed both K9 and aviation units to find her.

The sheriff’s office said Deputy Craig Lariz and his K-9 Toby searched a wooded area across from her home, and found the woman about 250 feet south of the property. .

Full body camera video shows the woman lying on the grass.

Lariz asked her if she was okay, then called paramedics to evaluate her.

“Would you please take me down to my house?” she is heard in the video.

Lariz and other delegates gave the woman water, then carried her to a helicopter that took her out of the woods.

“There is nothing worse than the horror someone feels when their loved one goes missing,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Given the sweltering heat outside and the remote area where this woman fell, a very frightening outcome was avoided through the diligent work of our delegates.”

The helicopter took her to Heritage Primary School, where she was treated by paramedics. She was then taken to a local hospital because of severe dehydration.
