Greenwood (AR) police officers said Thursday that it is possible that missing K-9 officer Kina was seen. Kina has been missing since yesterday afternoon following a gunfire exchange that killed a Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office corporal.
Kina went missing in the area of 4722 Highway 253. Police now believe the reported sighting at about 9:30 a.m. was of a neighborhood dog and not the K-9 officer, however the woman who reported the sighting insists the dog she saw was wearing a vest.
Rescue workers at the scene said the heat cannot be good for Kina at this point.
Police Chief Will Dawson said Wednesday, he believed Kina may have been shot. Her handler, Cpl. Dennis Wisner, opened the trunk of his vehicle also believing the dog had been shot and Kina ran away.
Search crews have been looking for the K-9 since Wednesday afternoon and resumed the search Thursday morning.
