When my daughter went missing, this organization reached out to me in my time of stress and need. They went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did they assist in finding her, but they helped find and get her to a safe place. Melissa Rangel was my contact there and blew me away with her devotion to my case.
I cannot thank them enough. They were definitely the answer to this mother's prayers. Thank you so much TEXAS CENTER FOR THE MISSING and Melissa Rangel (my angel).
