Action adventures series Search detailed the stories of a trio of ‘bodyguards’ working for World Securities more often than not specialising in tracking things or people that were missing. The organisation had some heavy duty advanced technology that they could call upon to help with their cases – including dental implants that enabled them to communicate by clicking their teeth and radio transceivers implanted directly into the ear. Another major tool at their disposable was a tiny scanner that could send and receive information.
Of the three agent Hugh Lockwood was a one time astronaut and nominally the lead agent, Nick Bianco tended to deal with organized crime and C.R. Grover tended to be something of a floater taking cases where ever he was needed. The trio answered to V.C.R. Cameron who watched over them from his hi-tech base. Also on hand was medical supervisor Gloria Harding.
Based on a pilot called Probe. The stars rotated the leads and appeared only every third week (despite all appearing in the opening credit at the beginning of each episode.)
