Five-year-old Dawn Cook enjoyed her adventure Sunday evening after she wandered away from her grandmother’s yard in a densely wooded area about three miles south of Calwood.
“But I don’t want to do that again,” Dawn said Monday after her Sunday night ordeal, “I scratched my legs.”
Dawn said she and her dog Pepper were lost and then it got dark. “I wanted to go home but Pepper didn’t want to go,” Dawn said.
About two dozen volunteer firemen along with county and state law enforcement officers and neighbors assembled a search and rescue team to comb the densely wooded area all around Sharon Hix’s home.
