To successfully initiate a mission, a significant amount of information needs to be gathered in a short period of time, and as efficiently as possible. The forms in this section will facilitate this process. This section and these forms are under development - please contact 1SRG prior to downloading and filling out these forms.

The following information should be provided to 1SRG as soon as possible. Even if you are only considering requesting our services. Gathering and sending this information as soon as possible will greatly facilitate the process.

The amount of information requested below may appear to be daunting but if taken in stages it is not difficult to manage. Much of the information requested will assist you with understanding the situation better, reducing your stress during this very difficult time. The information will also help other parties involved with the search work more effectively.

There are only three very important steps to remember:

  1. Fill in the Lost Person Questionnaire and gather the basic information about the search area. Fax this information to 1SRG, even if you've not officially requested our assistance. This will help you organize your thoughts and will help us provide you with better advice. Please do this as soon as possible.
  2. Once you are requesting 1SRG's services, please arrange for an official request to come through government channels.
  3. Arrange for a secure base of operations and for transportation from the airport to the base.

There are a lot of other details covered below and we will assist you with making all of these happen.

If someone you know is lost or missing internationally and you have any questions, doubts, fears, or concerns - call. Any time, day or night.
