Texas Center for the Missing (TCM), a 501(c)(3) missing persons organization formed in March of 2000 after the disappearance of 17-year-old Gabriel Lester who was reported missing from his private high school. Gabriel’s mother, a Houston-area businesswoman, decided after his remains were located four months later to turn her tragedy into a positive effort that would have an impact on missing children and their families in Greater Houston. We at Texas Center for the Missing strive to stay true to our founding mission to help searching families find hope.
