    New here. So hope I can post this here. I have been looking into a missing 14 year old, 1997. I came across some information about someone, that I think could possibly be involved. How do I verify what I've found?

    First, please pass the information to LE! Verifying that information is LE's job.

    Is there a thread here for the missing child? If not, start a thread with as much information as you can -- location, date, name, and the situation with links to a main stream media or LE source.

    @birdsofsorrow , you will find help in the search here.

    Can you share more information? One of us oldsters can start a thread for this situation.

    Is there a place where the abbreviations used on WS are listed? I looked on FAQ, but did not see it there or anywhere in the Rules, Etiquette or New Member posts. Obviously I know WS = WebSleuths and LE = Law Enforcement, but what does MOO mean? What does BBM mean? I know it will be obvious and I will feel silly after finding out, but I have to ask. Maybe a list can be added to FAQ for us newbies? Thanks!

    Hi. I hope this is the right place for this question. Is there a Forensic Science forum? (I searched, but none came up). There are details of a case that are graphic, and I thought it might be a good idea to keep them off the main thread page. So far, the details have been contained to off-site pages, with advisories posted with the links. If there isn't a dedicated Forensic Science forum, is there one that would be appropriate? Thanks in advance.

    If you know the address, can you look up the history of the owners? That's assuming that they owned the house. Search for property appraiser in your county, or some such name. Look on the county tax website and see what you can find.

    If you can get the owners' names, your internet search might be more effective.

    I'm surprised you didn't find anything in the newspapers. Have you tried newspapers.com? You can get a trial subscription for a week or so. Have you asked for help at the local library? They might have some newspapers on microfiche that are not on newspapers.com or other online sites.

    I’ve looked all around the site but can’t find the correct page, I’m sure it is not this but maybe you can direct me to the right place please?
    When I have a private conversation, I get an email each time someone posts a reply and I want to stop this happening as it’s clogging up my internet In box with hundreds of replies. Do you know where I can sort this ? Many thanks in anticipation x
