Does anyone have any information on this subject? Any groups in SC PA that do this? No looking to track criminals. I belive the police have K9 units for that. I'm thinking more kids and alzheimers patients.

be prepared to see a lot of stuff you dont want to. my uncle does it and mostly what you will find is people who have decided they no long want to be alive. he once told me there is a huge difference between someone who is lost and someone who is missing.

Just went through my first SAR training, now a "First REsponder". You said it though... not even necessarily the people who have decided they no longer want to be alive. its the child with autism, or down syndrom, who gets lost in the mountains, and you're the one who finds them, dead due to hypothermia, or some other cause. All that goes through your head is your own children... It's alot tougher and rougher, and it's not all glory. In those situations, about the only peace you can have, it the mindset that you at least brought "closure" to a family. Sure there are happy endings which the rescuers find the lost and bring them out to their families safe and sound, but one thing i wasn't prepared for going into these trainings, was having to deal with children.
