HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) -- Officer Snoopy, reporting for duty! There is a happy ending to a very scary situation in Hendersonville this week.

Hendersonville Police Officers responded to a report of an elderly resident from a local assisted living facility who had wandered away from the facility in the middle of the night.

Officer Jon Wing and his partner, K-9 Snoopy, responded to the facility at around 1:30 a.m. and were able to use the scent from the victim’s bedding to track her.

The team was able to locate the woman at the bottom of an approximately 40-foot drop near the facility.
