On Friday, they set out with search dog Mary Lou to search for an 11-year-old little girl, and it was a successful day for police.
Police in Tampa, Florida, posted the unusual story on Ex X's Twitter account. They were alerted around 8:00 pm local time, and went to the scene with a dog to find the missing girl. The tracks led them to a house, but residents directed police to a nearby park. The dog smelled something there and led the police straight to the public toilet, and as it turned out, the girl had locked herself there.
Finally the police asked him to get out!
