    What do you know about TES? When do they come to help in a missing person's search? Have you ever been a TES volunteer? What was your experience like with TES?

    I think it's important to know the reason behind the existence of TES and what motivates Tim. Here's a link that describes it in more detail:

    http://texasequusearch.org/Documents/Recognition/200412PointofLightAwardRelease.pdf

    In summary, his daughter went missing and LE would not search because they assumed she was a runaway, even when Tim discovered that a girl whose body had been found in a certain field months prior had only lived 4 blocks from his family. Tim asked LE to search that particular field in case there was a connection. Again, they told him that his daughter, Laura, was a runaway. Seventeen months later, her body (and that of another victim) was found after kids smelled a foul odor - in the same vicinity that the other girl's body had been found.

    My opinion is that it is tremendously difficult to rise above personal circumstances that bring someone (or in some cases, continue as an individual or organization) to work in SAR work as a professional. And Tim has done so repeatedly- as have many others.

    But it is hard work, incredibly painful, and frustrating.

    IMO, SAR standardization means a lot. And TES has that.
