book has been the cornerstone for land search coordinators for over three
decades in thirteen countries. If you are an instructor, Search Manager, or
Overhead Team Member in local or regional search operations, this is a must
have text. Spiral bound, 540 pages, 3-hole punched and in 8-1/2X11 or A4

The Perfect Combination
Teaching a MLSO class? Consider using Lost Person
Behavior as part of your class. For many instructors this is the perfect
combination when conducting the map exercises that are integral to the MLSO
class experience. Students will then use the most up-to-date information,
get a chance to see different ways of thinking about where to look, and most
importantly practice with the right tools while still a student. Case
discounts are available for Lost Person Behavior.
