The Shawn Hornbeck Search and Rescue Team is a member of NASAR (National Association for Search and Rescue) and a member of SARCOM (Search and Rescue Council of Missouri). It is also involved with the National Search Dog Association. Shortly after the recovery of Shawn Hornbeck, his parents announced that they intended to withdraw from active involvement with the foundation, leaving its operation to family friend and co-founder Chris Diamond. However, they have since returned to active involvement, and their son has made public appearances on behalf of the organization.
