“Yesterday morning there was a collective sigh of relief in the greater Puget Sound area when a 14 year-old boy and his 3 year-old Golden Retriever were found safe in the woods near Yelm, Washington. The unnamed boy said he followed the sound of a Navy helicopter back to a road, which led him to safety.
The boy, who was reported missing about 8:30 p.m. Friday night, said he got lost when he chased his dog into the woods and then was unable to find his way out. The Thurston County Sheriff’s office said that the young man had gone for a walk behind the family home near Braywood Lane Southeast around 5 p.m. The family’s Yelm property borders Joint Base Lewis McChord,” quoting Susy Raybon, Military Community Examiner.
