Volunteers sought to locate missing

NEW CASTLE — U.S. SARR Corps will conduct a program for those interested in becoming trained volunteers to help locating missing people.

The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Koppel Fire Department on Fifth Avenue.

SARR stands for search, rescue and recovery response — which is what the organization aims to provide.

The group’s mission is to “provide resolution for families and communities who have experienced an unaccounted for or missing person event” whether one individual or multiple people as a result of a disaster.

The unit has positions open to new members because of its current expansion in advanced methods.

The regional headquarters is in Beaver Falls and the group operates throughout the tri-state region and beyond.

The unit has been in existence for 40 years and continues to research new and more efficient tactics for locating missing persons in all categories especially those who are autistic or suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, abducted children and other disappearances.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
