Bailey, a German Shepherd with leash attached wearing tan coat and red service vest was in a van involved in an accident Nov. 27. She was located late in the day Nov. 28.
UPDATE: People close to Roland Harrison, who was injured in a one-car accident Tuesday afternoon say his service dog, Bailey, who was in the vehicle but fled the scene, has been found. According to Laurie Adams, who helped Harrison connect with Bailey two years ago, several people were looking for her, and Harrison's son-in-law finally located her deep in a wooded area near Ferguson Corners. She was taken to a veterinarian.
Roland Harrison, 83, of Rte. 14A, Penn Yan, was injured in a one-car accident at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27 on Rte. 14 in Benton just south of the county line. His car went off the road and struck a culvert, rolled over, and came to rest upright. Yates County Sheriff's Deputies, Penn Yan Fire Dept. and Ambulance Corps, and Medic 55 responded. Harrison was treated at the scene, and taken to Geneva General Hospital for further care.
During the crash, Harrison's service dog, a 5-year-old female German Shepherd named "Bailey" who was traveling with him, went missing in the area of Ferguson Corners Road and Route 14A. Bailey is wearing a red service dog vest over a tan coat and has a leash attached. Harrison remains hospitalized as a result of the accident, but others are combing the area for his loyal companion who may be frightened and/or injured.
Searchers ask all who live in the area to please check any out buildings or other places on your property where she may have taken refuge.
If you see Bailey or have any information, please call Laurie at 860-614-1753 or the Yates County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control at 315-536-4438 right away.
