UPDATE: The Wood County Sheriff's Department confirms their K-9 officer, Toro has been found.

The department says Toro was located around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday not too far away from where he went missing in Portage County.

Toro had a small cut to one of his paws, but was in overall good health and will return to work on Friday.

The department says the terrain in the area made the search difficult as there are cranberry bogs, deep woods and bodies of water.
