The dog stopped running and looked back at Officer Gonzalez. It was obvious that the dog wanted him to follow. Gonzalez was curious, so he allowed the dog to lead the way. They were in the Autumn Ridge neighborhood, a quiet residential area where nothing really goes on. The dog turned into a driveway off of County Line Road. That's when Officer Gonzalez realized what was going on.

There was a woman, most likely the dog's owner, sitting on a chair on the front porch. Something was a bit strange, though. The woman was slumped over and didn't seem to be moving. Officer Gonzalez immediately went over to her. Gonzalez touched the woman and he feared the worst.

"To be honest with you, I thought she was dead. And when I went up, she was very cold to the touch; her lips were blue,” he told Fox 6 Now during an interview. Thankfully, Gonzalez showed up just in time. When he checked her pulse, Gonzalez realized the woman was still alive. He immediately called dispatch and waited for help.

Officer Gonzalez's partner was close by, so he gave him a call. In order to get the woman out of the cold, the partners carried her into the house. As they were waiting for the ambulance, they figured out who the woman was. Her name was Krystal Wendt. It wasn't going to be easy, but it was time to call the next of kin.

As soon as Officer Gonzalez called Tianne Wendt about her mother, she felt weak. "Basically what he told me was, he said that they thought that she was dead. So it's hard," she said, as she fought back tears. Tianne and her aunt, Krystal's sister, immediately went to the hospital where her mom was taken. Now, it was time to wait for news.
