The Queensland Police Service can confirm the search for Police Dog Quizz will scale back this afternoon.
A large-scale multi-agency search has been underway since he went missing early Tuesday morning, January 11.
Police have been overwhelmed by the support provided by the community throughout the search operation, which will remain ongoing in a reduced capacity.
Senior Constable Dan McGreevy, PD Quizz’s handler, expressed his gratitude for those who have assisted in the search.
“My family and I are deeply appreciative of everyone who has given their time to help find our best friend,” he said.
“He is much loved and is deeply missed. We are heart-broken and miss him every moment he’s not with us.
“It has been my honour to serve with Quizz and remain hopeful that we will find him, so we can continue to help make our community a safer place together.”
A reward will still be considered for anyone who has information that assists in locating PD Quizz.
He is described as a three-year-old Sabel German Shepherd with a black and tan hide, wearing a tracking harness and long lead. He went missing after his lead slipped through the hands of Senior Constable McGreevy while tracking an offender through dense bushland off Greenwood Village Road at Redbank Plains.
Police are appealing for anyone with CCTV in the following streets to review their footage for any sign of PD Quizz:
• Henty Drive
• Old Ipswich Road
• Beaver Court
• Hallets Road
• Rice Road
• Greenwood Village Road
• Redbank Plains Road

Police are also appealing to motorists who may have driven in the Redbank Plains area since 3am on January 11 to review their dashcam vision for potential sightings.
