The missing children blog was just cited by CNN as a source – I think for a picture they had of a missing teenager found today.
A challenge in developing online resources for missing people is whether to work to support many websites and thereby increase the “online footprint” or try to direct everybody concerned to the key websites for missing people. I don’t have an opinion yet, but I’m leaning towards the “many websites” idea because there are so many search terms related to these cases that the chance of somebody “bumping into” a missing person picture or solution or case is better with more sites.
Search and Rescue is generally a very different category of missing persons investigation. This blog was to focus more on those cases but I’ve found far fewer SAR cases hit the news than I’d thought. The Kim Family search and the Mount Hood rescue in Nov-December 2006 quickly became international news but it seems they both had a lot more “traction” than any Search and Rescue cases since that time. Still not clear to me if that means selective attention or a lack of unresolved SAR cases.
