    Tips before submitting
    1. Make sure not already ruled out/submitted.

    2. Post up vital stats, all listed/poster info for UID and missing person side by side. (date missing/date found, height, weight, eyes, hair, circumstances, belongings, ect)

    3. Line up pics side by side.

    4. Find out everything you can on the UID/Missing Person from web/news. Compare information.

    5. Get advice and input from other sleuthers.

    6. Make sure another Wser doesn't have LE contact in this case, we don't want 50 different people calling in matches.

    7. Call LE/ME on both sides, missing/UID and see what info they are willing do disclose.

    8. Get advice input from other sleuthers with new/or no info.

    9. Submit

    Please feel free to add YOUR tips. I am learning as I go!

I am calling today in regards to an UID that is listed with your agency, ____ (give the date of discovery for UID's or the name of the missing person along with the date of disappearance. Then you will want to ask if this uid has any of the medical issues listed with Billy Jean's case. You may be asked "what agency you are with " you are just a volunteer and you can mention you are involved with Websleuths.
    If it turns out this uid has similar medical listings, then you go forward with " I have a possible match that I would like you to take a look at" I always have the case # , the whole case actually infront of me when I call. You'll need to give them the contact info for the comparing case.
