A dog helped rescuers find her 88-year-old owner, who went missing the day before in southern Japan, police said Tuesday. The pilot of a police helicopter searching for the missing man spotted the dog in an orange field about a half mile away, leading to his rescue Monday, said Uwajima police spokesman Takatoshi Hirokawa.

The 88-year-old farmer was missing since Sunday evening after going to another orange field with his 11-year-old female dog, named ''Maru,'' Hirokawa said.

The man, whose name could not be disclosed at his relatives' request, strayed away after falling down while cutting weeds, he said.
