FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - The founder and director of Texas EquuSearch will be in Fairfield on Tuesday to assist in the search for Katelyn Markham.

Tim Miller will meet with law enforcement to help look for Katelyn. He is with Texas EquuSearch, a mounted search and recovery team based in Dickinson, Texas.

Katelyn, 22, was last seen Aug. 14 at her town home on Dorshire Drive in Fairfield.

"I promised the father that we'd just do the best job that we can do, and maybe we can be a small part of just bringing this to an end," Miller said.
Texas EquuSearch has assisted with other high profile cases, including the search for Caylee Anthony in Orlando, as well as the search Natalie Holloway in Aruba -- Miller said they'll start their search from Katelyn's townhome at create a search radius from there.
"Well, we're going to look at all the areas out there where someone could pull in, and dump something and get out quick --we'll start out from where she disappeared from and just do probably, a 10 mile radius," Miller said.
In addition to search efforts horseback and via helicopter, Miller says their organization, which is funded through donations, can use technology and equipment that many law enforcement don't have.
"We've got ground penetration in case there looks like there's something that could be buried, we can actually see what's underneath the ground, we've got a small airplane that we've used, we've got some real high tech equipment if we need to be doing anything in the water," Miller said.

Meanwhile, friends of Katelyn held another search on Monday.

A Facebook page has been set up to help find Katelyn. She is 5'3", 130lbs., with green eyes and brown hair with blonde highlights. It's unknown what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance.

If you have any information on her disappearance, please call CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.
