  • Pete in New Zealand

    Pete in NZPete Roberts, team leader of Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team (NNPMRT), has been invited to speak at New Zealand’s LandSAR (Search and Rescue) bi-annual conference. He will make presentations to these search and rescue volunteers about the work he has done during the 40+ years he has been in mountain rescue as part of NNPMRT and also as a founding member of The Centre for Search Research (TCSR).

    TCSR was founded in 1998 as a registered charity by Pete and his colleague Dave Perkins to allow them to progress research into various aspects of searching for missing persons. Their main focus has been on two fundamentals of the ‘problem’ of missing; where to look and how to look. These two aspects form the basis of training courses that they have delivered around the world.

    Pete will also be talking to a group of New Zealand Police and the New Zealand SAR Secretariat about his involvement in Lockerbie and the UK Study of Missing Person Behaviour. This study helps plan where to look for various categories of missing persons and is based on what people, who have been the subject of a missing person incident, have done previously. It allows search planners to build a profile of the missing person and then predict possible locations where they might be and how far they might have travelled. This gives a focus for a likely area to search.

    TCSR has also developed techniques for searching for missing persons, particularly the first response to a search when time and urgency are crucial. TCSR have focused on this period, The Initial Response phase, which can be likened to the paramedic ‘golden hour’ when an urgent response can save lives.
