Sun Coast Resources, Inc, a Houston TX-based wholesale petroleum marketer and emergency fuel response company, proudly supports and recognizes Dickinson TX-based Texas EquuSearch (TES) for their long hours, hard work, dedication and mission of returning missing persons back to their loved ones.
Since its founding in 2000 by Director Tim Miller, following the abduction and murder of his daughter, Laura, TES’s all volunteer organization has conducted over 1,300 searches and has found 23% alive. TES trains volunteer search teams on the spot in the field. They search by foot, by horse, by helicopter, and utilize radar, sonar and scuba equipment, all-terrain vehicles, boats, airplanes, remotely operated vehicles and SAR dog teams in their searches. TES has been involved in searching for many high profile victims, including Natalee Holloway, Caylee Anthony, and Randy and Denim Sylvester.
Miller credits Kathy Lehne and Sun Coast for “being there when we needed them the most”. He says: “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”. In addition to financial donations, Sun Coast has provided fuel, transport, and other logistics support as needed.
Kathy Lehne, Sun Coast’s founder and president, says 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. Losing a child or any loved one is beyond comprehension. 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, during their darkest hour. I encourage every business and private citizen to make a donation to TES in support of their acts of heroism.”
