Police dogs being used more in missing person searches than ever before

New to the force are police dogs Meg and Jack,

Figures from Jersey Police show the force's dogs were used more in missing and vulnerable person searches last year than ever before.

In 2014 the highly trained canines were used to look for people more than a 100 times - that's an average of twice per week.

And this year they've already been used in around 15 searches.

The police dogs have been so successful that the States of Jersey police have just recruited two more.

See how long our reporter, Jessica Savage, can hide from a well trained police dog.
