Search Efforts

The Williamson County Sheriff's Office and concerned townspeople searched several areas during the first few days Rachel was missing. When their search proved unsuccessful, Rachel's family decided to call in a Search and Recovery team whose success rate in returning missing people to their loved ones is higher than average. Texas EquuSearch, a mounted SAR group from Dickinson, in Galveston County (near Houston) was contacted to help. They have been helpful in recent months assisting other law enforcement agencies and families organizing search efforts under similar circumstances around the state. Read more about the search for Rachel.

A special appreciation goes out to Rev. John Selle and the parishioners of the Faith Lutheran Church for allowing the search HQ to be established there. It was very disruptive to their normal activities to have several hundred people and horses, etc. congregating there for deployment.

How Can You Help?

First think of your own family and loved ones and be sure they are always moving about in as safe an environment as possible. Rachel was confident that she was okay jogging in her own neighborhood. She had done it hundreds of times. Make sure your loved ones are always in the company of someone you know when out of the house. It may seem confining, but be prudent and teach your children to be aware of their surroundings and potential dangers, without creating paranoia. There are many educational programs available, usually through your local law enforcement agencies, Search and Rescue groups, churches, Gabriel's Gifts, etc. Particularly useful are updated ID Kits available from The Laura Recovery Center, Gabriel's Gifts, Texas EquuSearch, or other organizations.

Contributions may be made to support the continuing search efforts to bring Rachel home or other search activities needed in the future. These may be sent to:

PO Box 1699
