A dog missing for 11 days after the accident that killed her owner on a Northern California road was found and reunited with the man’s family.

Lena, a 4-year-old German shepherd mix, was seen running from the single-car rollover on May 30 on Highway 139 in the Modoc National Forest.

Jamey Gerhard Johnson, 48, was found dead in the car.

The Modoc County Sheriff’s Office issued a call for the public’s help in finding the dog.

On Sunday morning, June 10, Forest Service employee Mike Hinton found Lena in the area of the accident, 12 miles northwest of the town of Canby. She was in good health.

She was turned over to the sheriff’s office and was reunited that afternoon with Johnson’s family in Oregon.
