How do I run a search?
There are a number of search parameters you can use to restrict the number of cases that will be returned, or just click on 'search' to see all the cases listed. The search parameters that are most useful are gender, age when last seen and ethnic appearance. This information can be entered either into the fields on the home page or use the case search tab. There is an advanced search facility where you can enter the location last seen and/or distinguishing features.
How does the search on 'age' work?
When using 'Age' to search our records we create a possible range of ages based upon the age and date last seen values provided. For the lower end of this range we take the age provided and remove 5 years. For the upper end we add 5 years, plus the difference between the date last seen and the date found. This range allows us to ensure that any discrepancies in the identified age are accounted for.
