The Search Dog Heroes project is delivering awareness to thousands of families
nationally whose loved-ones are living with dementia, learning disabilities or mental
health problems; all of which are linked with high risk disappearances, by delivering
educational tools to advise on how to prevent disappearances and how to prepare
for them. This includes how to capture a person’s scent and safely store it in case the
worse happens, through a designed scent toolkit.
If you have one of our scent capture kits, it’s simple to capture and store a scent to give our Lowland Rescue search teams, and their Search Dog Heroes, the best possible chance of finding the missing person quickly and safely.
If you don't have one of our scent kits, you can still capture a scent for yourself, a loved one or a client, using everyday items from home. Follow the step-by-step instructions below on how to capture and store scent in a jar.
