River City SAR History

River City Search & Rescue was created in October 2015 in response to the overwhelming community support in multiple searches for 18 month old Lonzie Barton. At the time, the closest trained search volunteers are located in Volusia Co. In January of 2016, we held our first organized training session at Jennings State Forest. Now in our fourth year, our organization has gone through some profound changes over the last 365 days. We are available statewide for any large scale incidents, but we focus on our local area. We are currently available for all agencies within the Jacksonville FDLE region in addition to Hamilton & Suwanee counties, which fall under Tallahassee. Our primary service area is outlined in blue:
