Welcome to the home of Missouri Valley Search and Rescue Team based in the St. Louis, Missouri area. We provide our rescue services FREE of charge, 24 hours a day, when contacted directly by Law Enforcment and/or other Emergency Service Agencies within a 100 mile radius of St. Louis in both Missouri and Illinois*.
If you are a family member or a friend of a missing person we ask that you please contact your local authorities first and have them request that our services be used.
Please note that we are not able to respond to search or be deployed by family/friends requests directly. For safety, professional and liability reasons WE NEVER SELF DEPLOY!
* We may respond to other emergencies outside this area if requested and resources are available.
