It began as a normal walk for Belle and Crew Saturday, until a man came out and asked owner Mark White if he had seen his 64-year-old wife, who suffers from dementia and was missing, according to WXYZ.

White said he would look for her.

It didn’t take long until the dogs sensed something in a wooded area and started pulling White that way.

"Sure enough, there was someone sitting in the woods," White told WXYZ. "We waited for cars to pass, and I walked across and said hello."

They walked the woman home just before dark. Investigators were still taking a report, police chief Ron Moore told WXYZ.

The man and police thanked White.

White is rewarding Belle and Crew with treats.
