UPDATE: The above headline has been updated to reflect the news, reported tonight by NBC, that the dog is, sadly, not an actual part of the airline staff. Newspapers from the Daily Mail to the Toronto Star, and television stations, including network shows like Good Morning America had reported that the dog was really a member of the staff.
Locating the owners of forgotten items in airports can be a challenge, so special forces have been enlisted by an airline in Amsterdam. From a teddy bear found by the cabin crew to a laptop left in the lounge, Sherlock has the nose for the job.
KLM, the Royal Dutch Airline, has trained the dog to run through airports, tracking down owners of items left behind.
“When you see the reactions of the passengers, it is really amazing,” said the trainer.
