SIDNEY, Ohio (WEWS/Meredith) -- A K-9 is being hailed as a hero for sniffing out the location of a missing three-year-old child in Ohio on Tuesday.

Just before 1 p.m., Shelby County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a missing child, according to authorities.

Within 10 minutes of arriving on scene, K-9 Bandit located the missing child, the department stated.

"This is exactly why we have dog units, watching this track you could tell very well that Bandit had the scent of the child and was well on his way to finding him," the department said in a Facebook post.
