The Texas EquuSearch organization has been blessed with a very special gift from the Clear Creek Community Church in League City, Texas. A couple of months ago, the staff of Clear Creek Community Church asked one of their members, Richard Guidetti, what our organization needs to help find more missing persons, and that they could donate to our team.
Richard is not only a member of the Clear Creek Community Church, but he is also a long-time member and Search Coordinator with Texas EquuSearch. After speaking with Texas EquuSearch Director Tim Miller; Richard informed his church that a very sophisticated piece of floating side-scan sonar technology is needed to find more drowning victims.
Clear Creek Community Church quickly purchased the side-scan sonar device for our organization. Upon completion of building our sonar unit; Dennis & Tammy Watters were soon requested by Illinois authorities to help them in the search for a missing drowning victim. Within minutes of beginning their search for the drowning victim; Dennis and Tammy were able to successfully locate the submerged human remains, and divers quickly recovered the victim. So this piece of brand new technology has already proven its success and priceless worth.
We are very confident that this special gift from Clear Creek Community Church will greatly increase our success in locating far more drowning victims, as well as some evidence that law enforcement investigators need found. This portable piece of equipment that was developed and built by Texas EquuSearch member and sonar expert Dennis & Tammy Watters, will increase the ease of search access to certain areas, and will be considerably and significantly less in cost to operate than our larger boats. The hand-carried portability will shorten the time in locating a submerged drowning victim, will reduce the physical strains and manpower of loading & unloading the larger search boats, and it will be more user-friendly and much safer than using a traditional sonar unit on a larger boat.
Clear Creek Community Church has honored our organization with their wonderful and magnificent gift to find missing persons.
