Success Stories

Border Collie and Owner - Drone Search and Rescue


A border collie has been rescued by a drone pilot used to track down missing dogs Socks the dog was rescued after he was apparently hit by a car, with his worried owners not knowing where he was.
He was found by Jamie Jewell, a volunteer for Drone SAR For Lost Dogs. Mr. Jewell, 42, spent around 20 minutes searching with the drone before he spotted Socks curled up in a ball. Speaking of what it was like to find the missing dog, Mr. Jewell said: “I was quite tearful to be honest. “It was a really nice thing to find him safe, and a little bit overwhelming but it only then spurs you on to keep going with it and do some more.”Drones to the rescue!
Hayley Quinn Church, whose 13-year-old brother owns Socks, said the help was “invaluable”. “Without Jamie’s help I think we would never have found socks in such a rural area,” she explained. “The drone service he provides to distraught owners like us is invaluable.
Small Dog and Owner - Drone Search and Rescue


A very busy 24 hours for the team has ended this evening safe in knowledge that little Brandy, missing after a walk yesterday morning is now back home with his family after being found by the drone team this lunchtime.

Brandy had gone missing in a very difficult desert area. After his family searching all day yesterday, the drone team was contacted in the late afternoon for support. A team member made their way to the area and met with Brandys owner and family members. The scale of the area soon became apparent and a decision was made to make use of the teams drone to scour the very steep sides of the valley and look for any signs. Whilst this was happening, a helicopter pilot friend of the family was covering large areas of open ground on the lookout for anything that could a sign of Brandy. As night fell the search was called off as it would have been unsafe to continue.

Around 12:45, We, along with a team volunteer, heard a noise in the gorse near to where Brandy had disappeared, and a position in which scent items had been left. After a brief search of the area, Brandy popped his head out of the gorse and that as they say was that. We secured him with a lead and carried him out of the desert where we met with his family and reunited them.
