Pritchard was found by a search dog with the Greater Houston Search Dogs team. The dog that actually found him was on its first deployment. Laura Recovery Center Senior Case Manager Dawn Davis said the dog must have had "beginner's luck."
The dog followed Pritchard all the way out of the woods and didn't take its eyes off of him until he was safely loaded into the EMT vehicle, Davis said.
Pritchard was found on the ground and taken to a hospital in northwest Houston, where he is in stable condition, according to Davis.
