Missing horse returned safe and sound

A 20-year-old horse went missing in Promised Land State Park.

GREENTOWN, Pa. — A welcome reunion in Pike County. 

Sylvia, a 20-year-old horse, went missing earlier this month in Promised Land State Park.

Her owner and a group of volunteers spent every day searching for any sign of Sylvia. 

Until a woman biking a nearby trail spotted something a little out of the ordinary, a horse standing in her path. 

The bicyclist actually has experience with horses, so she was able to keep her calm until Sylvia's owner arrived. 

There was a $1,000 reward for Sylvia's safe return, but the rescuer asked for the money to be donated to area animal organizations instead.
