(06/19/17) - A sad update to a story we brought you about a missing leader dog named Brinkley who ran away from her new owner in Almont.

Leader dogs for the blind released a statement saying Brinkley's body has been found without elaborating further.

Brinkley ran off in May after someone accidentally ran over her leash with a lawn mower.

Monday, the organization reached out with the update, thanking everyone in the leader dog and local community for their tireless efforts in searching for Brinkley.

Brinkley, a yellow lab, was trained by Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester.

Brinkley ran away from her new home in the 200 block of Almont Avenue in Almont on Saturday afternoon.
