Dog who helped find lost toddler has died

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A bloodhound credited with helping save the life of a toddler in Stearns County has died.

Olivia was the K-9 partner of sheriff’s Deputy Robert Theisen. A necropsy determined Olivia died of a twisted stomach recently.

Three-year-old Elizabeth Schefers disappeared on her family’s farm in Brockway in November 2012. The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/19U3U5W ) says Olivia and another bloodhound tracked the girl’s scent to a hay bale. The toddler fell from the hay bale, suffered broken bones and was trapped in a small space behind the bale.
