    I discovered you could do it by Region (like the Pacific which would include Washington, Oregon, and California), or do it by State.

    This tool is very good and I agree it could use a few tweaks. The physical markings and clothes and accessories are areas that I find if expanded into the Search feature would help. I tend to look at those categories to check for matches. The Exclusions category is great as you can see if the person you are checking has been excluded. Having the city or the county as part of the Search feature is something I noticed would be helpful.

    I do use the tool each day and am always amazed at how many new people come up missing. Thank you again for the great tool.

    One of the UID's I checked did have attached pictures of clothing and accessories. You have to click on the white arrow to the right of the photo. Also sometimes the clothing/accessories are listed under that category.

    Thanks, Linask. Maybe a Yes or No in the Search feature for tattoos, things like that. My thinking was to expand the Search ability to help narrowing down the results. I'll keep working with it, maybe I'm missing an easier way to narrow the searches.

    Tattoos are listed too, but I forgot under what category. I was looking to match my two MP's to UID's, so I may have gone about it differently than you. I narrowed it down by sex, State, ethnicity/race, age range, and years since disappearance.

    Hey there! Since this just pulls data from NamUs, there is not yet data from other countries just the U.S.

    This tool is really neat! It's close to a pet project I've been doing. I've been slowly compiling a spreadsheet of missing people from NamUs that is searchable by the Find tool. (i.e. for appendix scars, I search my database for "append" and appendix, appendectomy, and other variations come up) This is helpful with things like scars, clothing, jewelry, etc. So the technology is way less cool but may have a bit of a finer tip. I'm only up to 1979 of missing women. I started this just to make my own searches a little easier but does anyone know if something like this already exists for web sleuthers? Or is this something anyone could use? Like I said, I'm still in the early processes, but it's constantly being updated little by little.
