The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office confirmed with News 18 that 3-year-old Abby Ladwig has been located.

Winter (WQOW) - The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office reports Abigail Ladwig, 3, followed the family dog into the woods on August 9.

Both the dog and girl remain missing despite an earlier report from the sheriff's office that the dog had been found.

The dog is a gold and tan cocker spaniel.

WINTER, WI (WQOW/KBJR) - Volunteers are canvassing an area near Winter, Wisconsin Monday morning after a 3-year-old girl was reported missing.

According to Lisa Koch, the child's mother, Abby was last seen around 6:40 p.m. Sunday outside her home in Winter.

Koch, who said her daughter had been playing outside and likely wandered off, said they notified police shortly after they realized she was missing.

Abby was last seen wearing a black shirt with sunflowers and was barefoot.

Koch says her daughter has blonde hair and blue eyes.

She said her daughter is very shy and likely will not say anything if she is sacred.

It is also possible she is with the family dog, Peanut, who is also missing.

According to the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office, volunteers are being asked to register at Doc Smith Park near the intersection of Park Street and Grove Avenue.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office at (715) 634-4858.
