South Carolina Dog Team Locates Lost Boy Scout in Blue Ridge Mountains

A South Carolina woman and her search and rescue dog Gandolf found lost Boy Scout Michael Auberry in the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina today around noon. Michael had been missing since Saturday after wandering off from the Boy Scout group he was camping with. What an amazing discovery! We'll update you as we learn more. But how thankful Michael and his family must be for this rescue volunteer and her dog Gandolf!

UPDATE: South Carolina Search Dog Team Member Misha Marshall was the handler for Gandolf ,who scented out Michael, saw him in the distance and alerted Marshall to the boy's location. We covered the Search and Rescue Association of South Carolina in an 2005 article, but if you'd like to learn more about this fantastic organization click here.
