Officer Ryan Paulsson and Ellie: teamwork paid off. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WN file photo
UPDATE Westport Police Officer Ryan Paulsson and his bloodhound Ellie tonight found a 70-year-old Easton man who had been missing with his dog since late afternoon in subfreezing temperatures in the sprawling Trout Brook Valley Preserve that includes land in Weston and Easton.

The man, identified by Easton police as Robert Kinney, had been missing in the more than 700-acre preserve since about 4 p.m. His wife called police when he had not returned at nightfall, Easton police said.

Due to the cold and the age of the man, Paulsson and Ellie were called in about 7 p.m. to assist Weston and Easton police and fire units and a state police helicopter engaged in the search, said Westport Police Lt. John Croffy.

Upon arrival at the Wells Hill entrance to the preserve, Paulsson was able to get Ellie to obtain a scent off the driver seat of the missing man’s vehicle, he said.

They also said it was the exit for “Sherwood Ls.” instead of Sherwood Is. A spokesman said the signs, part of a $4.7 million sign upgrade project, will remain covered until fixed next month. “It was an honest mistake,” he said.
