MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- After several days of searching, a family has been reunited with their lost dog.

Lauren Etz posted a live video to her Facebook page Friday morning announcing the good news.  She planned on taking Tanner to the vet to get checked out.

"I am overwhelmed," she said with Tanner in her arms.  "I have no words right now."

After a near-death car crash, Etz had been searching for the dog.  Tanner, a Golden Doodle, ran away from the scene of the crash Sunday near Prosperity Church Road on Interstate 485. 

Etz has owned the 4-year-old dog since birth.
