Authorities in central Wisconsin are turning to the public for help in locating a specially trained law enforcement dog.

Sheriff's deputies from Wood and Portage counties searched throughout the night Sunday for the German shepherd named Toro. Authorities said the dog was helping a State Patrol trooper search a vehicle for drugs in Portage County Sunday night when Toro ran into a wooded area and disappeared.

Officials said the dog is not considered dangerous unless provoked.
