After searching over 10 months for cadaver K9's to do a search/recovery for my missing loved one Kathy LaMadrid, we were lead to Special K9's Search & Recovery. I volunteer for Search & Rescue in California, so one might think I would have no problem to get K9's from my own team out to search my areas. Crossing county lines to search for someone though with out the Sheriff's consent is no easy task that many will do if a family is asking. If the Sheriff's Dept doesn't issue a call out for that Missing Person, no one is coming to search, leaving families no where else to turn. I had been searching across the country for a team who knows what they are doing & that has had " FINDS" of Missing Persons, because after almost 10 yrs of searching for Kathy I have been told even if we have the right area, we would still have to be very close to where she is located to be able to find her. I believe we have found the right team who is way over qualified & has had many "FINDS" over the years that will come to search for Kathy simply because we have asked. The possibility of closure for a family, you can not put a price tag on, and by having someone who will listen to the family's needs & answer their request, well I can't express that it absolutely means more to us than I can put into words. Not only are they coming to search for Kathy, but also for Missing Person Cort Jones missing from Redding , Ca. since August 2012. Both families are hoping for a resolution, at the very least though this will provide some answers allowing both families to cross areas off the map. When a family is searching for their loved one, search & rescue teams call this " a rest of the world search".
California Searches coming in early November 2014. Please keep us in good thoughts & prayer that we have at least 2 Finds while Special K9's Search & Recovery are out in California.
