I was on facebook about 6 months ago and read that someone’s lab was missing.  I looked at the dog’s picture and decided to jump in my car are search the nearby neighborhoods.  After about 2 hours of searching for the lost dog, it was getting dark out so I reached out to the woman on facebook and told her to leave her back gate open and put the dogs food and water bowl along with some of her clothes with her scent on them.  I was so happy to read on the facebook page that the dog was lying in his dog bed the very next morning.  I was overjoyed.

So if this should happen to your dog, just try your best stay calm and follow the steps listed above.
