A stage dog from North Texas is no longer missing.

Autumn the Golden Retriever played "Sandy" in several productions of "Annie." She and another dog named Harley disappeared from their backyard Friday in Lowry Crossing, just east of McKinney.

Autumn is also a registered therapy dog that visits the VA hospital, nursing homes, and assisted living centers.

The owners feared that somebody had taken the dogs; they spent all day Saturday searching for them.

Searchers found the canines on Sunday morning coming out of a drainage pipe about a mile from their home.

Autumn and Harley were taken to a vet for a checkup, but appeared to be okay apart from dehydration.
