Yorkshire Lowland Search and Rescue (YLSAR) is an organisation made up of a team of highly trained professional volunteers who have a specialist skill set to search for high-risk vulnerable missing persons 24/7 365 days a year. We work closely with both South Yorkshire and Humberside police to assist in SAR whenever called. 


Lowland Search and Rescue is one arm of the United Kingdoms’ Search and Rescue (UK SAR) provision comprising many other capabilities such as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Mountain Rescue, Cave Rescue, and more. All of which share similar features under a charitable structure.

  • A common objective: to locate people who are in distress, potential distress or missing, provide for their initial medical care or other needs and recover them to a place of safety.

  • Majority of funding is through charitable donations.

  • Most are majority staffed/crewed by volunteers who give up their time in support of others.
