November 8, 2017 – A missing 10-year-old girl was found and returned home safely in TN using a trained scent discriminate bloodhound, trained SEK9 handler team, and the girl’s scent.
Scent Evidence K9 Trainer, Trey Cash deployed with K9 Chloe after receiving the call from area law enforcement.
The girl’s scent was collected by Cash using the Scent Evidence K9 On-Scene Collection Kit, a new tool for collecting and preserving a person’s odor to avoid contamination, developed by the company to aid those K9 Units responding to missing person cases.
Cash stated, “It’s a great feeling to participate in the safe recovery of a missing 10-year-old child and it’s why we put tremendous effort into training our K9’s and handler teams.”
SEK9 Scent Preservation Kits have also been used to successfully locate those with Alzheimer’s Disease and Autism who have wandered.
