*** If you have a missing loved one that has a health issue (Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Autistic) contact us immediately!!! DO NOT WALK IN WOODS OR AROUND THE AREA. Doing so can ruin tracks. If we cannot respond in a timely manner, we will coach you through the initial search and on how to set a perimeter. ***
Contact Geaux Rescue either through our website (form below) or social media (QUICKER RESPONSE)
When we receive the request, we will contact the reporting source (preferably the person that made the report).
Once we have contacted the reporting source we will evaluate whether or not Geaux Rescue can assist in a case. We do not necessarily need law enforcement approval to enter a case, however we will contact the lead investigator to inform them we will be assisting. That being said, if foul play is suspected we will not take a case unless law enforcement approves. If at any time during the case foul play is suspected we will stop the search and wait for permission from law enforcement to continue the case.
A few cases that we typically do not take on are Cold Cases, Runaways or Voluntarily Missing. Geaux Rescue is a small group with limited money and resources. Cold cases take a lot of time and money to work. According to many studies 77% of runaways return home within a week. Do not hesitate to contact Geaux Rescue as we may be able to assist you in other ways.
GEAUX RESCUE DOES NOT CONSIDER THE MISSING PERSON'S BACKGROUND WHEN MAKING THE DECISION TO TAKE ON A CASE
Geaux Rescue does not set a limit on the length we will search for a person. When searching in the field we typically will search for three days or until further leads give us a new area to search. Although we are not actively on the ground or in boats searching we will continue to search via social media and other means.
Geaux Rescue does not charge for its services. Geaux Rescue DOES NOT start ANY donation accounts to pay for searches. All cost are incurred by the founder. That is why we limit the ground searches to three days. If the family request Geaux Rescue to continue searching with no leads we will discuss other options at that point.
