who we look for

We are deployed at the sole request of Sussex Police - we cannot deploy to look for any private individuals. If you or a loved one is lost, then please contact your local Police force directly.

The missing people we are requested to search for either don't know they are lost, or don't want to be found. Dementia, Mental Illness, Despondents are all very common reasons we get called out. The charts below show who Lowland Rescue looks for from a national perspective. These are not specific to our team but include all the callouts Lowland Rescue teams received nationally.
