timberland pro DEEMI continues search for missing MMA student
ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) Down East Emergency Medical Institute is a private, non profit volunteer organization that provides search and rescue services in the State of Maine and throughout New England.
They’re based in Orono, and specialize in finding missing, at risk people.
Justin Faloon, a Section Leader for DEEMI said their volunteers come from all walks of life and all different types of backgrounds. They carry a wide variety of certifications and employ different types of technology.
Faloon said DEEMI comes in during a search, assists and they continue on for as long as they presume reasonable after officials have called their searches off.
On Thursday, they spent the day continuing the search for David Breunig, who was last seen late Friday night leaving a party in Orono. They used ground teams, infrared technology and even a K 9 team which is scent specific and is cross trained in cadavers. Faloon said that DEEMI is affiliated with the dog team, V K 9. He also said that they are searching “areas of interest.” Searches have been taking place from Bucksport to the Orono area.
Faloon said they are staying as positive as possible in the search for Breunig, even though searches do take an emotional toll on them.
