Pointers use the type of collar you are referring to. The work over very long distances. The handler has a screen they can look at to locate the dog. Garmin makes them. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/545353
I had an intact male that was an escape artist about 30 years ago, well before technology allowed for tracking. I quickly learned not to waste time calling for him and to just silently hike around listening for where dogs were barking because inevitably it would be him visiting.
