A bomb-sniffing dog for Amtrak who went missing Saturday in south suburban Alsip has been found, police said.

Hako, a brown sable German shepherd, got away from its handler’s home near 119th Street and Pulaski Road in Alsip, according to Amtrak and the federal Transportation Security Administration.

The explosive-detecting pup has since been found, police in neighboring Crestwood said Sunday afternoon. No other details were immediately available.
