Hawaii News — Welcome, Magnum!

Amy Reges art

(Adapted media release) — Friends of the Missing Child Center of Hawaiʻi is graciously donating a scent-discriminating tracking dog to the police department.

The male Labrador named Magnum was purchased through a grant that the non-profit organization was able to secure from the Atherton Foundation. During his training in North Carolina, Magnum was already credited with finding a missing person.

The dog arrived in the state last week and has been housed at the Honolulu Police Department’s training and canine facility in Waipahu. He arrived in Kona today, Thursday, July 14, 2011.

“While, thankfully, it’s rare that a child goes missing in our community, we must remain prepared for such a tragic event,” Police Chief Harry Kubojiri said. “Since Tucker’s retirement more than three years ago, we have been without such an asset in West HawaiÊ»i.”
