    White said he would look for her.

    It didn’t take long until the dogs sensed something in a wooded area and started pulling White that way.

    "Sure enough, there was someone sitting in the woods," White told WXYZ. "We waited for cars to pass, and I walked across and said hello."

    They walked the woman home just before dark. Investigators were still taking a report, police chief Ron Moore told WXYZ.

    The man and police thanked White.

    White is rewarding Belle and Crew with treats.
