HOPE MILLS, N.C. (AP) - A military family in Hope Mills has been reunited with their dog that had been missing for six years.

WTVD in Durham reports (https://abc11.tv/1d7MDbe) that Fayetteville Animal Control found a microchip in the white boxer named Bam to trace him to the Weston family a few days ago.

A Good Samaritan found him by the side of a road and turned him over. The microchip traced Bam to the Westons’ previous address at Fort Lewis in Washington state.

Animal control authorities were then able to track the Westons to Hope Mills.

Eighteen-year-old K.C. Weston says the family was heartbroken when Bam didn’t come home six years ago. He says he was shocked when his father brought the dog home.

The Westons also have another white boxer named Mila.
