The Law of the 7 “P’s” (Proper Prior Planning Prevents P*ss Poor Performance):  An Elderly FL Woman who suffers from Dementia had smartly “Bottled her Scent” which assisted a Police K-9 in Promptly Locating her… Scroll down to read more!

An unidentified elderly woman with dementia from a small town called Sugarmill Woods (which is just north of Tampa) went missing on Tuesday, July 25th, 2017 but was found within minutes of her reported disappearance by a Citrus County Sheriff Deputy K9 because she had “bottled her own scent” almost three years earlier, just in case something like this ever happened.

Citrus County Sheriff’s Deputy Justin Williams responded to the missing elderly woman’s home and found a scent-preservation kit which had been bottled on January 19, 2015 inside of the house.

Deputy Williams was assisted by a specialist, K9-Deputy “Ally”, who sniffed the bottled scent and located the women (who at that point had been missing for about 2 hours) inside of 5 minutes.   

Per the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (via their Facebook page): “Do you have a SCENT PRESERVATION KIT?  K9 Ally hopes that you do. Last night K9 Ally and her handler, Deputy Justin Williams successfully tracked a missing endangered elderly woman with dementia. She had been missing from her Sugarmill Woods home for about 2 hours.  Her kit was completed about 2 and a half years ago. The scent kit helped K9 Ally and Deputy Williams locate her in less than 5 minutes!  The woman was returned home safely and K9 Ally was rewarded with a special treat, a tasty vanilla ice cream cone!  Great job Deputy Williams and K9 Ally!”

“Scent-preservation kits” can be bought online (click here for one – I have no stock in this brand, it’s just the first one the was a non-paid ad when I did a Google search) and generally include a jar, a gauze pad and tamper-proof tape.  The instructions are pretty simple: Swipe the gauze under your arm, put the stinky material in the bottle, seal the lid and date it.  Many of these kits claim to be able to hold a person’s scent for up to 7 years.
