FAIRFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) - Nearly one year ago, the national organization Texas Equusearch came from Texas to Butler County to help find Katelyn Markham and Billy Desilvestro.

Those individuals have not been found, however, this national organization is now locating themselves in Cincinnati, so they can help find other missing people.

"You'll see more of a presence that when law enforcement has somebody missing, you're going to see we can respond a lot quicker," said Dave Rader, one of Texas Equusearch's leaders.

The search organization has specialized members that are available when needed.

"We are going to be using the ultra lights here, the horse groups of course, people with ATVs," said Rader. "Also at our access we'll have ground penetrating radar that is available to us."

Recently in the Tri-State Paige Johnson, Billy Desilvestro and Katelyn Markham have disappeared without a trace. Texas Equusearch's local effort may give some hope for families missing loved ones.

"You never give up hope," said Rader. "Things continue to come in and as they warrant and when we need to we will put people on the ground and use the resources we need to bring these people home."
