A dog and handler have found a man reported missing in Clifton.

At around 10.45pm on Saturday (July 25) police were called to an address in the village following reports that a man had left the property in a distressed state.

Police Dog Blue and his handler, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit, were called to the area to assist with the search for the man.

Blue’s nose was soon to the ground and started tracking from where the man had last been seen.

After less than half an hour after the initial call, and after tracking through fields and several roads, Blue located the man in a car park.

Sergeant Vicky Stoughton from the BCH Dog Unit said: “I am very proud of Blue and his handler whose quick response and brilliant work led to finding this man safely in quite a short period of time.

“This is another example of how well the unit works with other officers across the three counties.
