WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — Three years later, a Michigan dog is back with her owners after she disappeared on a trip to suburban Chicago.

Lola vanished from a fenced yard in 2017 when Debra and Steve Mejeur of Kalamazoo, Michigan, were visiting a friend.

The couple returned hoping to find a dog that was specially trained to help Debra Mejeur in case of a seizure.

The Mejeurs posted notices and got help from volunteers but had no luck. Authorities in DuPage County recently got a call from a couple who had found the dog.

Lola had a microchip, which led to a phone call to the owners in Michigan.
