Lee sadly passed away on April 5, 2021. 

Here is a little bit about Lee:

His network of contacts and sources has enabled him to successfully complete some very challenging search assignments at all levels in such foreign countries as Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Kosovo, Lebanon, and throughout the United States and Canada.


Lee held a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and lived in

Maryland with his wife Jan and dog Cane, a Golden Retriever

show dog currently in training as a therapy dog.  


In his spare time, he was active in training assistance and therapy dogs for the hearing impaired and physically challenged.


We will miss Lee, and thank him for his dedication over the years.

Take a look at Cane winning his competition!
