PENSAR (Pender Search and Rescue) is a team of highly trained people in the art of tracking and locating lost persons. Our team is trained in Land Search and Navigation as well as Urban Search areas as well. Our team responds to all calls in Pender County where a person is believed to have wondered off from a residence, Nursing Home, Hospital, or other locations. Most of the individuals we are called to search for are either young children or the elderly with dementia, we also respond to the occasional lost hunter during hunting season. Along with the Land Search Team we also have teams that respond to our local rivers and streams to assist boaters that are in distress, broken down, or lost. PENSAR is a State Deployable Team rendering assistance across the state if requested.
