HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu authorities now have the help of a new police dog to aid in searches for people who have gone missing.

KHON-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1IwZkeJ ) that the arrival of the bloodhound named Reba was announced Saturday. The three-year-old canine was brought to the Honolulu Police Department with the help of funds raised through Missing Child Center Hawaii.

The department’s new service dog will serve as a replacement to another bloodhound that died last year. Police will use Reba to help locate missing people, such as hikers, fugitives and escapees.

Reba was rescued from a North Carolina shelter.
