ROSCOMMON, Mich. (AP) — Police say a northern Michigan police dog rescued a Pennsylvania man who got lost Sunday in a densely wooded area during frigid temperatures.

The Roscommon County Sheriff's Office says Ghost and his handler, Deputy Dakota Darsow, were called Sunday night to Gerrish Township following a report that a 58-year-old man had not returned several hours after going for a walk in temperatures that were around 11 degrees.

The sheriff's office says Ghost and Darsow tracked the man for about a half-mile through thick woods before finding him.

The man, who told officers he had gone for a walk and got lost, was treated at a hospital.
