After searching for countless hours, an Arlington family has found their missing Golden Retriever.

Owner Hollie Bamford said just after noon Sunday, a family near Walter Reed Drive in Arlington spotted Taz in their backyard. They had seen the flyer and media reports and called Bamford with the good news.

Taz, a therapy dog and blood donor, had previously been spotted in the Glebe Road area near Columbia Pike, but would run away when people got close.

He had run out of a broken window of his owner's station wagon after it was involved in a car crash on Nov. 19. Bamford said the car flipped over and Taz escaped.

Neighbors, residents and complete strangers even joined in the search, but could not get the 8-year-old to come home, until today.
