A soldier will soon be reunited with her dog, which went missing three years ago in Texas and has turned up in northern Arizona.

Prescott police say the unidentified soldier returned from deployment in Iraq in 2009 and asked a friend in Fort Hood to watch her basset hound while she left for a training mission.

It's not immediately clear whether the dog named Molly was stolen or ran away from the friend's backyard.

Prescott Valley officers found Molly roaming loose July 7 and took her to animal control, which identified the dog through a microchip.

Police say the soldier contacted family members in Tucson who picked up Molly.

The soldier plans to drive to Tucson to reunite with Molly once her current assignment is over in about a month.
