Good Morning supporters. We continue to search for Lucas today. All our members are volunteers and KSAR as a charity receives no government funding. Our volunteers don’t just put the hours in when searching, they are highly skilled, which comes via hundreds of hours training. Once the training and searching finishes, all our equipment needs cleaning, sorting and repacking. So for one hour dedicated to search there are tens of hours behind the scenes. The public support has been amazing and we have been blown away. Thank you! #volunteers #searchandrescue #kent #sandwich #searchforlucas ... See MoreSee Less
