Transcript for Couple finds dog after quitting jobs to look for her
Back in baby's arms We are back with the story of a couple whose dog went missing while they were vacationing in Montana and even dropped work for the search. 57 days later happy reunion. We first saw it in "The New York Times." T.J. Has all the details. Some people lose a pet and put up the flyers on the light pole but these folks put up the light poles, got night vision cameras, quit the job and all that eventually paid off. There they are. Reporter: This happy Reon Yoon was nearly 60 days in the making. My girl. Oh. Reporter: Washington couple Vern and Carole king were on a trip to Montana and brought their 7-year-old border collie Katie along. Came back at 11:30, went to the room, walked in and both of us were asking that question, where is Katie? Reporter: But somehow Katie got out through an unlatched hotel door. They searched for her for hours, then days, then weeks, by day 37 they set up rescue teams, Carol even quit her job as a postal carrier. I just know she was out there looking for me and I wasn't going to give up, no ma matter. Reporter: After 57 days of searching, a tip from a nearby resident came in, a dog that looked like Katie was spotted. I've been looking for you. So it was all worth it. Dog was found. Had lost 15 pounds. They even jogged in some areas so their sweat would be in that area in hopes -- you didn't need that detail this morning? Sorry. Hey, it worked. Something worked. They got reunited. The lengths people go to for their pet. Happy ending. We'll take it. T.J., thanks.
