PORT ORANGE, Fla. — Officials say a police dog that went missing while searching for a central Florida woman has been found.

The German shepherd, named Rex, broke away from his lead Tuesday afternoon while looking for 43-year-old Toni M. Contarino.

Police say Contarino had left work in a “depressed state” on Tuesday and was reported missing after leaving her cell phone and other items at her home.

The police dog was found overnight. Officials believe he may have been chasing after wildlife in the area.

Anyone with information about Contarino should call the Port Orange Police Department at 386-756-7400.
