"“Every case is solvable. It’s just tenacity.  If they have enough time to pursue it and the resources, there is no question about it."
- Joseph Pollini, former New York City police investigator of cold cases and a lecturer at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

What is Project Search?

Our mission is to offer hope through search assistance to families with a missing loved one due to suspicious circumstances.  The foundation steps up when law enforcement has exhausted their search efforts and resources.  No missing person search should falter due to a lack of resources or hope.  The search must continue.  Our team of tested and certified intuitives team up with experienced search and rescue volunteers to continue the search. This is a volunteer based organization.  Your donations are greatly needed and much appreciated. 

The number of unidentified human remains and the number of missing persons has been referred to as our countries “Silent Mass Disaster”. Each day, in the United States, there are over 100,000 active missing persons cases.


Michael Negrete was 18 years old when he disappeared on Dec 10, 1999.  He has never been found but the search has continued off and on over the years.  Mike was last seen at UCLA where he was a student.  

Project Search for Hope is planning a new search for Mike soon and we need your support.  We have 15-20 searchers all who are volunteering their time and energy.  PSH will provide water and food for the searchers and also gas for those who are traveling a great distance to assist.

Please help.  Every $5 and $10 donation adds up. 

Missing but not forgotten.....

A tribue to RED from Heather Roche of Bay Area Recovery Canines

Red, a black lab from Annapolis, has spent the last ten years as a search and rescue dog. Her missions have included Hurricane Katrina, the La Plata tornadoes, and the Pentagon after 9/11.

"The search and rescue dogs at the Pentagon are credited with finding 70% of the human remains," said Heather Roche, Red's owner and handler. "That helped a whole lot of those families actually get closure."
"For a quirky stubborn dog, she turned out to be a super solid search dog, who did everything I ever asked of her, although she always had to do it her own way on her own terms. She made me a much better handler. She had to excel in her search work to get any credit due to being in Alley's shadow as they were only a year apart but totally different personalities. What a career she ended up having! From her local to national missions, from finding burials to water finds to evidence recovery and working with archeologists. She proved you can have solid dual trained dogs and didn't confuse which command and task she was asked to do at any given moment. She was so solid I could hand her to others to work either for live find on a rubble pile or cadaver work, to be a teacher to handlers just starting out. She was the all around sar dog. A last of a generation. And the last of my original 'herd'. I will miss her..."

Project Search for Hope will miss her too.  It was an honor to work with you, Red.
