Seacoast K9 in Pennsylvania to catch a killer


DOVER- Tension in Pennsylvania grows as officials continue the hunt for a man charged with opening fire at a state police headquarters, killing a trooper.

A New Hampshire K-9 and officer are helping in the manhunt.

Daisy-Mae and Deputy Keith MacKenzie have been called to action.

Police are searching through sixteen acres of woods for an alleged killer on the loose.

Police combed through the Pennsylvania Ponchos for six weeks in search of suspected cop killer, Eric Frien. Police have yet to pinpoint where he is but his most recent citing too close for comfort.

"It was reported in the area of the Pocono Mountain East High School. The individual's description was consistent with Frien, and he was observed carrying a rifle," said Lieutenant Colonel George Bivens of commissioner of operations.

Now it's up to New Hampshire native, Strafford County's very own, Daisy-Mae to catch the killer.

"So we received the request from PEMA, Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, to have Deputy Mackenzie and Daisy-Mae respond to the incident," said Captain Robert Williams of Strafford County.

Officers say Dasiy-Mae is one of the best K-9 units New Hampshire can offer. She never leaves the woods unsuccessful like back in June 2014.

"After nearly five days of being in the woods Deputy MacKenzie and Daisy-Mae responded, were able to pick up the track and within an hour this person was in custody," said Captain Williams.

This is one of the oldest scents Daisy-Mae will have to track but New Hampshire police are confident the K-9 will once again be successful.
