Remote Wildlands Search and Recovery at a Glance

History of the missing in Brooks County

In 2012, over 120 deceased persons were found in Brooks County. All were attributed to being Border Crossers. There were no organized search operations in place at the time. All of the deceased were simply found by ranchers, Border Patrol, or Deputies, during their normal duties and activities. After several years of declining recovery counts, 2021 was a bad year. 119 recoveries, with 11 more as traffic deaths.

Activities

We search where others do not tread.

Remote Wildlands Search and Recovery searches remote areas of ranches primarily in Brooks County Texas. The harsh weather, soft sand, featureless terrain, and thick brush make the traverse difficult at best. This is where we operate.

A family should know what happened to their loved one.

We don't do this alone

Often, the human remains that we find do not have any identification. We rely on the Operation Id Program at Texas State University, as part of their Forensic Anthropology Department. We owe them a great debt of gratitude for their work. The University of Indianapolis also comes twice a year to help us search the vast ranches in Brooks County.
