An Open Letter to law Enforcement
RE: CADAVER RECOVERY/SEARCH AND RECOVERY
To Whom It May Concern:
Enclosed please find information regarding services being offered in cases of missing children.
The Child Connection, Inc. is a non-profit organization with a special focus to assist in the recovery of missing children/bodies. We do not charge for our services, however we ask that our expenses be covered.
There is hope for dated cases. Bodies can be located after several years. The longest period of time elapsed for a recovery to date was by an air scent dog in our school, which found the skeleton of a 2 year old after it had been buried for 27 years.
Contrary to belief, many people think that search and rescue dogs and cadaver dogs have the same function. This is not true. Highly trained cadaver dogs have a primary focus of locating the following: cadavers, crime scene and evidence location. Their secondary function is to perform search and rescue. Whereas, search and rescue dogs have a primary responsibility of locating an alive victim. Not all search and rescue dogs are trained to locate cadavers.
The Child Connection, Inc. offers certified air scent cadaver teams.
