DRONE USED FOR LIVINGSTON SEARCH
Gene Robinson and his wife Angelique are the owners of RP Search Services were in Livingston Wednesday afternoon to assist in the search for 57-year-old James Buckner who went missing on July 9, 2014. While Equusearch worked with 4-wheelers and ground crews, Robinson covered a lot more area in about ten percent of the time. The fixed-wing drone is almost five feet long and is equipped with a digital still camera which is also capable of shooting video.

After getting on a computer in his van and setting up a flight plan the drone is taken out and set up. The flight plan keeps the aircraft away from highways and within the field of view.

A flight checklist is then done, something like an airplane pilot would go through. He then throws it to the air like a glider as the engine spins up as it goes up the flight altitude. Robinson’s wife Angelique then takes over with the computer flying the aircraft from waypoint to waypoint as it continues to shoot overlapping photos which will then be gone over with a fine-tooth comb looking for evidence of the missing man or areas that the ground crews need to search.

Several years ago it was Robinson, who after five days of looking for little red-headed Devon Davis flew his drone in the area of Liberty County that he was missing. On that search, Angelique Robinson spotted a blotch of red amongst the green scum-covered pond. As everyone thought it to be an ice chest, she insisted it be checked. DPS Ranger Kevin Pullen ordered the DPS helicopter in the air to take a look. Within seconds the helicopter reported the news-the red was indeed the child.

Robinson has also done several Webinars on SUASNEWS.COM on the subject of drones.

He has traveled to several countries and around the state with his volunteer organization, searching for the missing

MISSING MAN’S TRUCK FOUND IN LIVINGSTON
James Buckner, 57 of Magnolia last talked to his wife as he turned in for the night in a hotel room in which she thought was Waco, Texas. That was on July 9th. The last time Buckner was seen by his wife was on July 6th at which point he was at home and she was going out of town.

Buckner, a salesman for a valve company that sells valves to the wastewater treatment industry was due for a meeting on Thursday, July 10th but was not heard from. His wife Kathryn then tried to reach him and was unable to reach him notified the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office obtained video from the Valero at FM 149 and SH 105 showing Buckner fueling is truck up the night of the 9th.

Montgomery County Detectives attempted to get phone records from AT+T for Buckner’s phone however AT+T did not comply.

On Sunday, July 28, 2014, Buckner’s wife Kathy contacted Equusearch who immediately went to work on the case.

On Monday they were able to obtain phone records from AT+T through an exigent request.

An emergency situation requiring swift action to prevent imminent danger to life or serious damage to property, or to forestall the imminent escape of a suspect, or destruction of evidence. There is no ready litmus test for determining whether such circumstances exist, and in each case, the extraordinary situation must be measured by the facts known by officials

Those circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to believe that entry (or other relevant prompt action) was necessary to prevent physical harm to the officers or other persons, the destruction of relevant evidence, the escape of a suspect, or some other consequence improperly frustrating legitimate law enforcement efforts.

With those records, they were able to determine a text was sent to his phone on July 10th. The tower where the signal came from was off Business 59 in the City of Livingston.

A search was started and searchers found Buckner’s white pickup truck in the parking lot behind the La Quinta Hotel in Livingston. Livingston Police were notified and processed the vehicle for any evidence. They also checked security cameras at the hotel but learned their cameras like many others, due to hard drive storage space re-write over previous video every seventy-two hours. They were able to tell the vehicle had been there at least 3 days.

Records were checked and it was determined Buckner never checked into the La Quinta. The hotel was searched but turned up nothing. Kathy Buckner credits Equusearch with being able to find the cell phone location. “If it wasn’t for EquuSearch resources we would still be looking in the Montgomery Area”, Linda Buckner said.

Equusearch, a volunteer organization spent the entire day Wednesday searching. Some volunteers on foot, others on four-wheelers, and still others using a drone. Most of the volunteers took off the day from their regular jobs to assist.

They will return to the search on Thursday.

JUDGE ORDERS HORSES TO SPCA
After almost an 8 hour hearing Thursday Judge Seiler awarded over 200 horses to the Houston SPCA. During the hearing, the judge heard from an SPCA veterinarian, the VP of accounting with the SPCA, Hermann Hoffman, who owned the horses and a Montgomery County Precinct 5 Deputy Constable who has been dealing with the situation for several years. Deputy Welch told the court how many trips had been made out to the Calico Dairy on League Line Road and the suggestions he gave Hoffman to bring the horses back to good health.

Pat Mahoney with the Houston SPCA said the cost to this point to keep the horses is $480,000. Herman’s attorney questioned the expenses as the SPCA was charging $40 a day for board. She said that was in line with Katy Veterinary Clinic and Waller Equine Hospital. However, he questioned if all the horses were actually seeing a vet daily and in individual stalls as at a veterinary clinic. She was unable to give a firm answer. Other costs included vet supplies, vet bills, feed at $40 a day, and micro-chipping at $10 each.

Seiler also awarded the SPCA the sum of $480,000 which Herman will be responsible for.

County Attorney J.D. Lambright was pleased with the ruling. He said charges are still pending against Hoffman and his wife. They include 20 cases each of cruelty to livestock animals and a felony charge of tampering with evidence. This was when Hoffman tried to relocate 5 horses just before the June 24, raid.

TREE IN SPLENDORA HOME
As heavy storms moved into Northeast Montgomery County they brought high straight-line winds with it. Gust up to 74mph were recorded 8 miles west of Splendora near Grangerland. In Splendora East, Montgomery County Firefighters were dispatched to a person trapped in a home with a tree on it. They arrived in the 27400 block of Rocking R to find a neighbor, Justin Cotie, had already gone in and rescued 80-year-old Ms. Heide. She was in the living room of her mobile home when the wind blew a large oak tree over on top of the house. The tree broke at the root line and the mobile home was supporting all the weight of the tree. Parts of the rear of the home had already collapsed and firefighters feared the remainder would not hold up much longer. This was the second tree in the yard that fell. Last year another large oak fell next to the home only damaging the fence. The base of that tree remains there as a reminder.
