On October 29, an eight-year-old police dog Daniel and assistant police inspector Atsushi Urasaki were awarded by Naha Police Station. Daniel and his partner found a boy who went missing at the southern part of Okinawa Main Island on October 2. Naha Police received a request from parents saying that their boy did not show up at school after he had left home. Daniel and Urasaki searched the area around apartments and parking lots near his house, pursuing the scent from the missing boy’s cloth. They finally found the boy safe after 40 minutes of searching.

Daniel is an expert police dog that is 50 to 60-years-old in human years. The dog has a gentle nature and a sense of curiosity. Daniel has been trained in chasing suspects and recognizing his or her smell. Urasaki said, “We got a good result and will keep training together.”
