Sunday morning, a man named Howard Overton spotted the dog in Evergreen Park. He flagged down an officer who caught Bear.
Detective King had been searching for the dog day and night.
"I haven't been getting any sleep. [I] think I've had about five hours in the last week. Every time there would be a sighting of the dog, no matter where in the city, I've been running to check it out," King said.
"I was just hoping that he would find the dog. I know, without the dog, he's lost. He needs his friend," said Overton.
A $2,000 reward had been offered for Bear's return.
