87S31483 BK-D

By: Bell of Montgomery H.R. No. 264

R E S O L U T I O N
WHEREAS, Tim Halfin has been deservedly recognized for his
role in locating a three-year-old boy who had gone missing in Grimes
County; and
WHEREAS, The child, Christopher Ramirez, had wandered into
the dense woods near his home in Plantersville on October 6, 2021,
prompting a massive search effort that involved a coalition of 48
agencies; despite searchers working around the clock, several days
passed with no sign of the missing toddler; and
WHEREAS, After hearing about the case at his Bible study
meeting, Tim Halfin decided to join in the search; on the morning of
October 9, he spotted Christopher about 10 yards into the forest on
the Halfin property; the youngster had traveled five miles from his
home, and although tired, hungry, and dehydrated from the journey,
he was otherwise unharmed; the news that he had been found alive and
safe brought immense relief to his community, and after being
treated at hospitals in Houston and The Woodlands, he returned home
to his loved ones; and
WHEREAS, By taking part in the search for Christopher
Ramirez, Tim Halfin helped avert what could have been a terrible
tragedy, and his actions have earned the profound gratitude of his
fellow Texans; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
Legislature, 3rd Called Session, hereby honor Tim Halfin for his
assistance in the safe return of a missing child and extend to him
sincere best wishes for the future; and, be it further
RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
prepared for Mr. Halfin as an expression of high regard by the Texas
House of Representatives.
