We are a not-for-profit, all volunteer forensic search and recovery team

Around the United States and the world, there are hundreds of thousands of missing persons as a result of accidents, foul play and warfare.  One of the most fundamental and universal measures of dignity any person deserves is the right to a culturally appropriate final resting place.  As it stands, the opportunities for that vary broadly depending upon where the person is missing and the economic status of their family. Simply stated: the current state of missing persons search and recovery efforts are far from ideal.  We are determined to change that.

Kolibri Forensics is incorporated as a nonprofit organization in Indiana and has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501c3 organization.  All donations are therefore tax-deductible.

We are focused at developing a volunteer forensic search and recovery team to assist any family, governmental agency or charity/nonprofit organization that may require our assistance.


We also conduct research, education and training related to forensic science and reducing the risk of serious or fatal injury in crashes.  Education and training opportunities will be available both for professionals and the general public.

One of our projects is developing a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) partnership with schools in order to promote forensic science and technology as a career particularly among underprivileged youth.  Service to others is an invaluable way to mold future leaders in communities and heal the wounds that divide people unnecessarily.  The STEM project will also allow the cost effective development of advanced search and recovery equipment providing mutual benefit to the students and the organization.  

However, YOU are just as vital a member of our team.   Your support- by volunteering, by donating goods or funds or simply through spreading word of our mission- is absolutely necessary for any of this to happen.
