KACY ROBINSON, M.S.

Founder/Professional Canine Handler

Kacy Robinson has been involved in search and rescue/recovery missions since she was a child. Growing up in a law enforcement family, she was privileged to attend numerous search and rescue/recovery missions throughout Utah. Her first recovery mission was a search for Ted Bundy’s victim, Sue Curtis.

Kacy attended the College of Eastern Utah obtaining her associate of science degree in Criminal Justice. There she also attended the Utah Bureau of Forensic Services Crime Scene Academy and is certified as a Crime Scene Analyst.

She then completed her bachelor’s degree in Communications through the University of Utah. Following which, she attended the Henry Lee College of Forensic Science at the University of New Haven where she obtained her master’s degree in Computer Forensics. While attending, she was the Lead Archivist on the Robert F. Kennedy Assassination Project.

When not searching, Kacy works as the Fatality Review Coordinator for the state of Utah. She is also a Digital Forensic Analyst aiding law enforcement agencies, attorneys, corporations, businesses and private individuals with data recovery and digital forensics.

Kacy spent twelve years with the oldest and largest search and rescue organization in the state of Utah with her two canine partners, Uintah and Wahsatch, both Golden Retrievers. In 2017, Kacy and her search partner Bret Sayer, established Fide Canem Cold Case, Inc. the first search and recovery team focusing exclusively on cold case missing persons and evidence recovery.

SEARCH AND RECOVERY

There are many different types of search and rescue teams throughout the world. Each team fills a specific and much needed area of expertise. The types of teams are as varied as the teams themselves providing qualified searchers and canines for live missing, wilderness search and rescue or recovery, disaster recovery, avalanche rescue or recovery, and tracking/trailing.


Noticing there was a need specifically for qualified search and recovery canine teams to locate those missing after cases have gone cold, Fide Canem Cold Case, Inc. was established. Members of Fide Canem Cold Case, Inc. are dedicated to providing their expertise in locating missing individuals for whom there is no active search taking place.


All team members have either law enforcement or crime scene experience and can assist with both civil and criminal cases.

TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

Members of Fide Canem Cold Case, Inc. train constantly to maintain a high degree of search and recovery proficiency.

 

Deployable anywhere, at a moment's notice to help locating missing persons, team members must maintain rigorous training schedules.
