"Bring The Missing Home"
Search Team and Recovery Specialists (STARS) is a unique, first of its kind search team.
We are law enforcement personnel and experts who specialize in the
search, rescue and recovery of lost and missing persons. STARS was developed because we
understand the enormous demands forced upon law enforcement agencies to search and locate missing persons with
limited resources as well as the sensitivity needed to assist in these type cases.
Our fields of expertise include the following areas:
- managing lost person events
- criminal and missing person investigations
- forensic anthropology
- crime scene photography
- computer forensic analysis
- K9 and ground search
- rescue and recovery teams
- aerial and waterborne operations
As law enforcement professionals we understand the distinctive challenges a missing person event can pose to
officials, families and the community.
And because of these challenges we have created STARS as a non-profit, community based organization for the
purpose of searching for lost and missing persons.
There is no charge to utilize our services as we volunteer our time, resources, and expertise whenever the need
