FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is giving some extra love to one of its K9s after a dramatic rescue of a missing woman.
The sheriff’s office posted video on its Facebook page of K9 Buzz finding a critically missing elderly woman who disappeared as Tropical Storm Fred was dumping heavy rain and storms in the area.

Video shows Buzz and his handler walking through a heavily wooded ravine area near a rising creek behind her home.
After a short time, Buzz was able to track Mrs. Kennedy down and rescue her. She was injured but alive.
“I found her. She’s in the draw behind the house,” the officer says in the video. “She’s about 20 feet down an embankment.”
Mrs. Kennedy responded to the officer when he asked if she was OK. Other officers soon arrived to help pull Mrs. Kennedy from the ravine.
“That’s my good boy,” Buzz’s handler is heard saying on video after finding the woman.
