Dickinson, Texas-based Texas EquuSearch (TES) achieves its mission of returning missing persons back to their loved ones across the nation.

Tim Miller credits Kathy Lehne and Sun Coast for “being there when we needed them the most.” He stated: “During these tough economic times we have seen a substantial drop off in donations and financial support, and to be quite honest … if Kathy had not stepped in when she did our doors would be shut today.”
Kathy Lehne, Sun Coast’s founder and president, stated that she “is proud to support TES and Tim Miller’s compassionate and determined commitment to finding those who are missing or have been abducted or murdered. Thanks to Tim Miller and his awesome volunteers, who never give up looking for those lost, many families have been helped when they need it most.”
