Equusearch Texas volunteers raised close to $300,000 on Saturday at the organization's annual fundraiser.

Tim Miller founded the organization back in 2000, six years after his daughter, Laura, was kidnapped and killed.

"For many years I felt like this poor victim and wanted to throw in the towel and give up," Miller said. "I don't know what kept me going. I think it was that little voice I used to hear out there, 'Dad, don't quit.'"

Equusearch has been involved in nearly 1,500 cases.
