First Mounted Search and Rescue Unit Deployment

The Overland Park Mounted Search and Rescue Unit, (OPMSRU) was called by Olathe Police to search an area close to 135th Street and Greenwood Street in Olathe. A missing person report was taken and Olathe PD had reason to believe this area was one of several areas where the missing man might be.

The terrain that the OPMSRU was asked to search was hilly, wooded, and covered in tall grass. This area would be difficult to search on foot, but easily searched on horseback.

Just as The Overland Park Mounted Search and Rescue Unit prepared to begin their first area search, the matter was resolved by the Olathe P.D.
