Mission: The Texas Missing Persons Foundation is dedicated to improving the technology and expediting the search for missing loved ones by a collaboration of public and private agencies. The Foundation will complement and support the interests of the families and friends of missing persons. It will provide financial support to qualified search teams and other 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. The TXMP Foundation is in the process of establishing a charitable endowment to acquire and build a national training center. The center will be dedicated to teaching and exchanging past experiences of both private and public agencies in a "hands-on" workshop format to be captured using modern technology. The goal shall be the transfer of knowledge and experience from older and experienced search coordinators to the next generation of private searchers, public agencies and law enforcement.
