Thanks Kermit!  I just saw the news too.  Haven't tried translating anything yet to see if I can tell what happened to him.  He couldn't have been that old.

I knew he was going through cancer treatment, but I thought he was doing
better, then I saw yesterday he had died.

Don't get me wrong, I know there are a lot of people who are dedicated to helping others through this organization.  They do good work.  Wish I didn't feel so skeptical of Tim Miller, but I do.  He needs to step away.  He will always be the founder and respected for that.  JMO

Texas EquuSearch facing funding crisis

By Phil Archer - Reporter
Posted: 6:09 PM, July 05, 2018
Updated: 6:09 PM, July 05, 2018

HOUSTON - Texas EquuSearch in facing an uncertain future, according to the nonprofitís founder, Tim Miller.

Miller said the organization is running out of money.

He said the organization is as busy as ever, but donations are down this year.

ďAfter Hurricane Harvey, itís kind of dried our donations up,Ē Miller said.

Miller said heís injected $36,000 of his own money to keep the doors open for the last three months.

He founded Texas EquuSearch in 2000 after his daughter was abducted and murdered.

EquuSearch is as busy as ever. Volunteers are currently helping local police in four missing persons cases. The subject of one of those cases is Gloria Jimenezís sister, Maria, the mother of a small child who went missing on her way to work last week.

ďHonestly, thatís my only support that I have right now. They are the only ones keeping me strong and still having faith that sheís somewhere and that sheís going to come back home,Ē Jimenez said.

In 18 years, Texas EquuSearch has become an important partner for police agencies ranging from the Houston Police Department to the FBI and Texas Rangers. The nonprofit has been involved in more than 1,800 searches in 42 states and nine foreign countries. Volunteers provide manpower police agencies simply donít have.

ďTo have that force multiplier that someone is going to go out there and search all these different areas, I mean, it certainly helps in their investigations,Ē said Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers Union.

But without new sources of funding, Miller isnít sure how long he can keep providing that help.

ďIím scared,Ē Miller said. ďFor the first time in my life, I'm really scared that if something doesnít break, Iím going to get a phone call and I'm going to have to say, 'Iím sorry, I canít help.'Ē

Miller is planning a fundraiser to be held in October. In the meantime, heís trying to attract new donors.

Here is more information:

It's not the first time in their history, and he has turned a family down before.
The snip below is from five years ago.
Now he had $36,000 in savings to chip in?  What kind of expenses average $12,000 a month?  If I were considering donating, I'd want to know.

Volunteer accused of stealing from EquuSearch
By Carol Christian, Chron.com / Houston Chronicle Updated 3:58 pm CDT, Thursday, June 20, 2013

Quote
Discovery of the thefts comes at a bad time for the all-volunteer group, which he said has been struggling financially in recent months.

"I seriously don't know if we're going to survive it," he said.

Miller told of receiving a call at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday from the family of a young woman missing in Louisiana, and said that for the first time ever he had to tell the family there was nothing EquuSearch could do.

Volunteer accused of stealing from EquuSearch
By Carol Christian, Chron.com / Houston Chronicle Updated 3:58 pm CDT, Thursday, June 20, 2013

IMAGE 1 OF 33 Vernon Armentor, 48, who allegedly made unauthorized use of a credit card belonging to Texas Equusearch, is in the Galveston County Jail on $20,000 bond.

A former boyfriend of Laura Miller, whose abduction and death led her father to start Texas EquuSearch, now stands accused of stealing from the organization.

Vernon Armentor, 48, was arrested this week and charged with credit card abuse, agency founder and director Tim Miller said Wednesday.

Miller started the organization in August 2000.

His daughter, then 16, disappeared in 1984 from League City. At the time, Armentor was her boyfriend. Picture of him at link

"I'm sick about it," Miller said of the theft allegations. "That was my daughter's boyfriend and would have been my son-in-law. It's a disgrace to Laura and a disgrace to EquuSearch."

Texas Equusearch Volunteer Charged With Theft
June 20, 2013 at 8:54 amFiled Under:Body Found, EquuSearch, Missing person, Missing Persons, Physical Search, Texas EquuSearch
DICKINSON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) ó A volunteer with Texas Equusearch has been accused of stealing from the search organization.

Galveston County jail records show 48-year-old Vernon Armentor was being held Thursday on credit or debit card abuse charges. Online jail records donít list an attorney for Armentor, who was arrested Monday at the groupís office in Dickinson.

Officials had noticed unusual cash withdrawals from the search and recovery groupís credit card. Video surveillance from ATMs helped lead to the arrest of Armentor, whoís known Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller for years. Armentor formerly dated Millerís 16-year-old daughter, Laura.

In other news related to the organization, Texas Equusearch on Tuesday had about $45,000 worth of equipment and a trailer stolen from outside a restaurant.

Miller started Texas Equusearch in 2000 following the 1984 disappearance and slaying of his daughter.

I have seen nothing to discredit Tim or Equisearch. Quite frankly, Iím surprised their expenses arenít MORE than $12,000 a month. They have many horses to board along with salaries and operating expenses. It isnít run from his home anymore - rent alone is probably in excess of $5,000 a month. I summed up my feelings on the last page of the thread.

Maybe a big corporation will step up and put some money into Equisearch, which is what they need. We need Equisearch to continue, in my opinion. It's people that prey on those who are the most vulnerable that make me sick. Losing a child is no joke and Tim has not only lost his daughter, but he has worked tirelessly at helping find others. I hope this does not discourage him to continue, he and his people have the equipment and knowledge that others don't.
