Obtaining the last evaluation parameters when NMaximize does not converge

Dear all,

 I am maximizing a function with ~ 100 parameters using NMaximize.  I cannot   find a maximum.  It would be helpful if once the function stops with an error (or I stop it when it is not making progress) I could obtain the last set of parameters that were used to evaluate the function being maximized.

I understand that reap / sow shows the whole series of points where the function was evaluated , once the maximum is found, so I have not been able to use it.

In this case, given how slow my maximization goes, it would be good to find a method that does not slow down the code too much.

I appreciate your help
