News From Russia
Lyubov recently attended a regional conference of dog handlers from around her area of Russia. At the conference were dog handlers and representatives from Rescue Services, The Ministry of Emergency Situations, The Federal Penitentiary Service along with of course Professional Services who Lyubov is a member of. The other attending Agencies were notified that all Professional Services dogs are and will be trained using INBTI’s method of training. The method was explained and a demonstration of the young Bloodhound pups abilities Lyubov is helping to train was shown. This is a link to the television news broadcast about the conference which includes some of the information that was presented about our method of training. The Federal Penitentiary Service will be contacting her to assist them at a future date !! :)
Here is a link to a newspaper article also
Thank you Lubov !! ……….. You and your team are having a positive impact not only in your region but across your great nation.

INBTI Instructor/Spotsylvania Virginia Deputy Delbert Myrick was a critical part of a large law enforcement team that saved the lives of two children that had gotten lost in a forest. The children were 5 and 10 years old, the weather was in the 20s and dropping. Although no one knew what had happened to them (they were playing in their front yard) they had gone into the forest behind their house to explore and had gotten lost. They kept walking in a futile attempt to find the way home. As darkness was approaching, cold and tired they crawled underneath a log in an attempt to shelter from the cold. Myrick collected a scent article, while the Fairfax County Virginia Police Helicopter was already flying in route. INBTI Member / Caroline County Virginia Sheriff’s Office Sargent (Bloodhound Unit) Craig Heywood responded and was on scene in case Myrick had collected a bad scent article or had other difficulties with his Bloodhound. Myrick started his trail and was about ¾ mile into the forest when the helicopter sweeping the forest front of them (using their heat seeking system) spotted an anomaly about 75 yards away. The children were safely returned home! This is a great example of the man-trailing team determining the direction of travel and properly dispatching the available resources to bring the children home safely. Great job by all and Thank you!!
Greetings to all instructors and members of INBTI helping me in any way learning and teaching TKM.

INBTI Instructor / Hemsi Dog Handler Joe Rybacki and K9 Porter acquired trail that ended at the edge of the TN River. Larry Welker and Cotton along with INBTI Instructor / Hemsi Dog Handler Colin Baessler with K9's Izzy and Jackson were able to locate amd confirm the subject was in the River. This case was very confusing. LE had no idea if the individual had been to this area or if his car was dumped there. Porter was able confirm the missing man had in fact been there and that he had gone to the water.
INBTI Instructor Joe Rybacki works successful case
Joe Rybacki trailed to where the man was spotted by other team members.
Unfortunately, he died the next day, however it was another great job.

MERITORIOUS AWARD for INBTI Instructor Marshall Thielen
AWARDEE:MPO Marshall E. Thielen & Cody
AWARD: Meritorious Commendation
Late one November night, MPO Marshall Thielen and his K-9partner Cody, a Bloodhound, were requested to find a24-year old critical autistic man missing from his home for 10hours.
This was a very difficult track that required handler and dog tobe in perfect sync. Scent diminishes with time and any trail the missing man leftwas now 10 hours old. People and vehicles following or crossing the scent trailcan obscure or destroy it, and both foot and vehicle traffic had been veryheavy in the area.
MPO Thielen and Cody were up to the challenge. Cody finallyacquired the scent; led Thielen along a jagged two-and-.a-half-milepath; and finally found the man in the heart of Fairfax City.
Their efforts saved the man from potentially hypothermicconditions. For their exemplary work under difficult conditions, MPO Thielenand Cody are awarded a Departmental Commendation.
Look at the map and report
Austrian INBTI Instructors Carolin Tanja Franz and Gundula Czappek successfully work a tragic missing persons case
Carolin and I had an rescue effort in Sölden, Tirol. We were searching for a 48 old man who disappeared late on a Sunday night during a thunderstorm, from a birthday party in a hotel. We both started searching on Wednesday, August the 1.....in the afternoon...days before a full search was mounted with helicopter, fire brigade, etc. ....Arthus started at the entrance of the hotel and trailed downhill to a bridge over a really dangerous mountain torrent called "Rettenbachle"...there he stopped and showed a NSI....no track was going on....really good boy :)!!! Samy gave the same results later that day....:)
So we could tell the police that there was definitely a end of trail (car pick up or fallen in the water ...we feared the second watching the clear behavior of our dogs)......
One week later the missing person was found in the river downhill called "Ötztaler Ache".....the mountain torrent "Rettenbachle" where we had our NSI is flowing in the big river "Ötztaler Ache"....
...therefore I think Arthus and Samy had made their jobs very very good....by learning your TKM method :) :) :)
......again I want to thank you so much for teaching us
INBTI Instructor Michael Szelc tracks down suspect in hammer attack
By JONATHAN PARKER
Star-Tribune Staff Writer
Dry Fork- A Dry Fork man was arrested and charged with hitting a man in the head with a hammer last Tuesday.
Ronnie Louis Harris, 57, of Sunset Drive, faces one charge of malicious wounding.
Harris allegedly struck Clinton James in the head and back with a hammer during an argument on July 3 at 3:15p.m. according to an arrest warrant.
James was "covered in blood and had a bloody towel around his head," the warrant states.
James had two visible puncture wounds to his head and three or four puncture wounds to his back.
James, who was taken to Danville Regional Medical Center, claimed Harris attacked him, according to reports.
The Pittsylvania County Sheriffs Office K-9 unit, a bloodhound, was used to track Harris, who left the home walking after the attack.
Harris is being held in Pittsylvania County jail without bond.

INBTI Training in Great Britain press release
INBTI Instructors/ HEMSI Team Members work Instrumental in making arrest in "cold case" file
Cheri working as a dog handler for US ATV Search team out of Omaha, Nebraska was called to the scene of a missing mother and child 4 1/2 days after a fruitless search was launched from their vehicle. She was asked by the police to only determine a direction of travel for them. Once she had that firmly determined the direction of travel after studying a map the authorities asked her to go to a lake which would have been a natural barrier in that direction to see if the missing had made it that far. After receiving a solid NSI at the lake the search focused on the terrain in-between the grisly discovery was made there. read about it
