ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOV) -- A guide dog is returned to its owner after a person in the neighborhood found the dog after seeing the report of the missing guide dog on the news.

The neighbor called the St. Charles Sheriff Department to return the dog.

A toddler accidently let a guide dog out of a St. Peters home on Saturday.

Owner Mark Roberts said the golden Labrador retriever went missing around 5:30 p.m. from his home on Churchill Downs Drive in the Steeplechase neighborhood.

The service dog, named "P.J.," has a tattoo on its ear and is microchipped, Roberts said. It is six years old and weighs about 90 pounds.

Roberts said it cost about $60,000 to train the canine, which "is not an outdoor dog."
