A missing show dog who escaped while traveling has been found safe. 

Marvel is a female Rhodesian Ridgeback.

John Nevin said Marvel was being taken from Sault Ste. Marie to Lansing to be bred. He stopped at the Travel Michigan Welcome Center on US-127 in Clare Wednesday night. When he opened the car door, Marvel bolted from the vehicle.

A search party, including people from the Humane Society, the owner of the dog, and John’s own family, combed the area surrounding the Welcome Center. Hundreds of people also shared Marvel’s information on Facebook.

Nevin said on Sunday night, they got a phone call they'd been waiting for. 

"We got call she was seen behind the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church around 11. We raced over and couldn't find her. Her owner just sat in his car in the parking lot and fell asleep. He woke up about an hour ago and Marvel was banging on the car door. He opened it and she jumped in," Nevin told TV5. 

Nevin said Marvel is in great shape, but hungry.
