The b → s transitions with missing energy in the final state, which could be an efficient probe of dark matter, was demonstrated. It was shown that the decay of B mesons to K(K*) and missing energy in the final state could be an efficient probe of dark matter models in this mass range. The minimal scalar dark model was also analyzed to show that the width of the decay mode with two dark matter scalars B → KSS might exceed the decay width in the standard model channel. It was found that the minimal scalar model of dark matter with the interaction mediated by the Higgs particle predicted observable rates for B+ → K + and missing energy.
