BOGOTA. – Sniffer dogs have been brought in by Colombian police as they close in on the location of Liverpool star Luis Diaz’s kidnapped dad.
Colombian authorities believe the lair of the kidnapping gang is located in the inhospitable jungle terrain of the Perija Mountains near the Venezuelan border.
Two German Shepherd dogs called Laticha and Tekila have now joined the hunt and Colombian police chiefs say more will be introduced as they close in on Luis Manuel Diaz’s captors.
The dogs are said to have been trained in detecting the smell of clothes, suggesting they have already been exposed to the scent of Diaz’s father.
The country’s army has already been joined by an elite police anti-drugs commando squad specialising in complex jungle operations to find the 58-year-old.
Now, Colombian National Police director William Rene Salamanca Ramirez has confirmed that sniffer dogs have joined the search. – The Sun.
