I'll try how you are doing it, could be I'm are using too wide of a range when searching.
Hey there! Since this just pulls data from NamUs, there is not yet data from other countries just the U.S.
You're very welcome. We're glad to help.
Hey there! We've passed this feedback on to our data team. In the meantime, please do send us the url to any matches you're having issues with. Thanks!
HOW DO I BEGIN A MISSING PERSONS THREAD
Subscribing and Following
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.
Is this tool still up to date? I don't see anything for 2019, it's a great tool!
I sent an email to one of the developers in January and told them about how the tool isn't updating anymore, he was very nice and told me he would forward the information onto his data team who handles the tool.
This is pretty ding dang helpful! I'm so glad I stumbled upon this thread! My only suggestion would be to add more search parameters (height and weight, hair and eye colors) because when I'm trying to match a UID who's 4'11", I'm not fond of having to go to each individual case, scroll down, and see their height and realize that it's way off. But, really, it's so nice having them side-by-side and rolled into a golden egg of easily navigated information.
Can this be removed since it is no longer active?
This tool is gone. Is there a replacement or something similar, aside from the namus website?
Well that answered my question! Rather quickly too.
Unfortunately the UID that I thought most closely resembled my MP cousin had already been ruled out. One of the two that they've matched his DNA against in Oregon.
