A chocolate-colored Labrador retriever that disappeared along with its owner on Saturday was found safe and unharmed at the same time the missing woman, Harriet Holbrook, was located, Alameda police said today (Monday).

Lt. Jill Ottaviano said Holbrook and the dog were together when they were found Sunday morning on Bay Farm Island. Both are now safely at home at Holbrook's residence in Alameda, she said.

An earlier police report mentioned finding only Holbrook, and several Alameda Patch readers asked whether the dog was located as well.

Holbrook, 68, went missing about midday on Saturday, Dec. 28, after she left her home to take the dog for a walk. The initial police bulletin said Holbrook suffers from early stage Alzheimer's disease.
