A Connecticut State Police K9 was used by troopers to help in the search for a missing hiker in Stafford on Monday night.
State police troopers and K9 Ugo went searching for the unidentified hiker around 7:30 p.m. Police said they tracked the missing hiker about "1 mile across difficult terrain," but not before going through a small body of water.

The hiker was able to get out of the woods on their own and did not suffer any injuries.
