A search and rescue canine is the hero of the day after she tracked down two missing kids.

A 13-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy disappeared from their home in Black Forest around 11 a.m. Thursday. Their mother says she returned from running an errand to find a note left by her children that they were in a playhouse on their property. But when she went to look, the kids were gone.

That where Halo stepped in. The newest member of the El Paso County Search and Rescue smelled the children's clothing inside their home and then followed the scent until she found them about a mile and a half from the house. This was her first find since joining the team.

The kids were reunited with their mother shortly before 4 p.m.

The family is breathing a sigh of relief after a very long day.

As a reward for a job well done, Halo got to play with a ball.
