PRYOR — PRYOR (AP) — Mayes County sheriff's officials say a missing police dog may have been found at Big Cabin in neighboring Craig County.

Mayes County dispatcher Kacie Oberg said Monday that a dog that appeared similar to the missing dog Max had been found and taken to the Big Cabin police department. Oberg says Mayes County authorities were heading to Big Cabin Monday afternoon to check the dog.

Sheriff Frank Cantey told KOTV earlier that the dog was at the home in Strang of his partner — Deputy Travis Fleming — when he disappeared Sunday. Strang is about 25 miles southeast of Big Cabin.

Cantey said Max disappeared during the day Sunday after being placed in an outdoor kennel.

Oberg said authorities don't know how the dog got out.
