An Erie County Sheriff's K9 successfully found a man who ran away after an argument with his family over the weekend.

The man's family called police after he took off Saturday afternoon in Boston.  K9 officer Cort and his deputy handler used the scent from the man's clothing to track him through the woods.

The dog was able to track the man about a half mile away on the bank of the creek.  The man, who is in his mid-20s, was found in good health.
