A missing woman was found near Mundelein by K-9 Dax, who works for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities say that if he hadn’t found her, things could have turned out “dramatically different.”
At 8:35 p.m. Sunday, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in unincorporated Mundelein because someone was missing.
Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said that sheriff’s deputies found out that the person was an adult woman who left her home around 6 p.m.
The woman was having trouble with her mind, so she left on foot. Covelli also said that she was not dressed right for the weather.
The woman didn’t bring any of her things with her or her cell phone.
The sheriff’s deputies tried to find the woman by calling her family and friends, but no one knew where she was.

Deputy John Forlenza of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and his dog, Dax, went to the scene.
The two people started a song at the woman’s house. Dax found the woman quickly. She was only about 500 feet from her house.
The woman was about 75 feet away from a nearby walking path. She was in a wooded area.
Covelli said that she was unconscious and they thought she had hypothermia.
The woman was taken to a hospital nearby, where she should get better. No wrongdoing is suspected.
“Without the help of a sheriff’s dog team, this could have turned out very differently,” said Covelli.
John Idleburg, the sheriff of Lake County, said that he is still impressed by how well the canine teams work.
“They save lives every year, which is why we added more dogs to our organisation. Idleburg said, “I’m very proud of how hard my staff worked together to save this young woman’s life.
