OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A dog has been reunited with a Utah family, two years after it went missing in Lexington, Kentucky.

Jennifer Lowe of Ogden says her family was thrilled to learn the Beagle mix named Tilly was found in Lexington days ago and identified through an implanted microchip with information about the animal's owners.

She told KUTV-TV of Salt Lake City (http://bit.ly/1OVRLf5 ) the family thought they would never see Tilly again after they moved from Lexington to Ogden.

After the dog wandered away in 2013, nobody turned Tilly in to an animal control center. But after the beagle recently got loose again, someone took her to a facility where she was identified.

Christine Stoops of the Facebook group "Lost and Found Pets of Lexington, KY" drove to Utah with Tilly and gave her to the Ogden family on Friday.

The dog was a gift to Lowe's daughter, Phoenix, after her father returned from military duty in Afghanistan.
