The search for a missing police dog ends with a bad outcome.

Eddy, a 16-month old German Shepard was found dead along Interstate 39 yesterday after being hit by a car.  A search began for the dog Monday after he got out of his kennel when the wind blew it over.

His handler, retired Peru Police Officer Derrick Benning says the dog belonged to the La Salle County State’s Attorney’s SAFE program and has only been in Peru for about one month.
