Abstract
We report a search for muon neutrino disappearance in the $\Delta m^{2}$ region of 0.5-40 $eV^2$ using data from both SciBooNE and MiniBooNE experiments. SciBooNE data provides a constraint on the neutrino flux, so that the sensitivity to $\nu_{\mu}$ disappearance with both detectors is better than with just MiniBooNE alone. The preliminary sensitivity for a joint $\nu_\mu$ disappearance search is presented.

The expected sensitivity directly supersedes the MiniBooNE only νμ disappearance result, as substantial flux and cross section uncertainties have been reduced.
