Maggie, the clever pet who outsmarted trained search and rescue canines, played a vital role in this missing person investigation

In 2018, a family dog named Maggie found this bone and brought it to her owner, Amanda Moors, a field biologist working in the area of Long Park. The bone turned out to be a human femur
