He has over twenty-five years of experience in search and rescue and crisis management, and has managed search efforts for over 200 missing/abducted children around the country. He managed the community-assisted search effort following the abduction of Polly Klaas which has become the model for child abduction search strategies.
Brad travels extensively throughout the United States providing dynamic and relevant instruction concerning search and rescue operations, advocacy to families of missing children, child abduction search management, and the sex trafficking of minors and also serves as “Master Lead Evaluator” for the National Association of Search and Rescue (NASAR).
His effort to locate missing and abducted children has led to the discovery of traffickers abducting and recruiting our children into the unsavory world of prostitution. Brad has been instrumental in the rescue of numerous children from sex trafficking and the intelligence he has gathered has assisted in taking down several child prostitution rings. His rescue efforts have been chronicled on CNN, The Early Show, The Today Show, Dateline, MSNBC, and 48 Hours.
Brad has been awarded the Commissioner’s Award from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the prestigious Justice Award from the Foundation for the Improvement of Justice for his efforts to locate missing children.
