A bloodhound from Louisiana is being heralded a hero after finding a missing toddler, NBC News reported.
Three-year-old Eli Alcock reportedly wandered away from his Florien, Louisiana, home Tuesday afternoon.
Doug Downs, a local pastor, was contacted, with the hope that his bloodhound, Honey could be of some help. Downs told NBC affiliate KPLC that Honey’s only real experience at tracking has been while hunting deer. But Downs said he wanted to help.
After several hours of searching, Honey led searchers to Eli, who was found safe in the woods behind his home.
Lindsy Alcock, Eli's mom, says her son doesn't remember much about what happened that night.
