"We received a call for a missing woman in Lake Superior. We then called the Coast Guard, Dept. of Natual Resourses, and the Bayfield Fire Dept. Dive Team. We also called the St. Louis Co. Rescue Squad with their SONAR and several remote controlled vehicles (ROV) to search the bottom. We also had aircraft involved in the search. The search continued for one day and part of the next. We were certain she was in the water but the searchers said she wasn't there. We called Sunshine Service Dogs from Luck, WI. Three SAR K9's and five handlers from over one hundred miles arrived within a few hours. One dog was put to work searching the shore line and two were put on boats. Soon one dog in the boat alerted in an area previously searched. The other dog was brought to the scene and it also alerted. Dive team members recovered the body from the 34 degree water in almost inaccessible area from shore. The dogs had accomplished in literally a few minutes what the latest high tech equipment hadn't been able to do. The service we received from Sunshine Service Dogs was awesome. For the family we wanted to complete this search quickly. Thanks to the amazing dogs we were able to."
