A dog that went missing after a crash in Glacier National Park on Thursday was found by its owner on Friday morning.

Trigg, a 10-month-old, 90-per-cent wolf dog, was found at around 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 28, about 22 hours after his owner was injured in a three vehicle crash near the Loop Brook Campground, about six kilometres west of the Rogers Pass summit.

The Times Review published an article about the crash and the missing dog and it quickly became one of the most read amongst the Black Press chain.

Sgt. Kim Hall of the Revelstoke RCMP said they received many calls about the missing dog. It appears Triggs stayed in the area of the crash, with several sightings reported.

"Parks was able to give him some food but he was very timid and ran away from them," said Hall.

This morning, the owner, who had been released from hospital, went to look for Trigg and found him near the site of the crash.
