Make better use of a 404 page by helping to find missing children

Make better use of a 404 page by helping to find missing children | Missing Children | Scoop.it

Most of us will at some stage have arrived at a '404' page, even if we are not all aware of it by that name. The "404 - Not Found" web page is generated, when a user attempts to follow a broken or dead link, hence the 404 error is one of the most recognizable errors users can find on the web.

In many cases, the '404' page contains very little information but there are also many that have been customised with helpful information about why you have arrived there and suggestions as to what you might do, Sometimes they are even humorous.

The Notfound Project has provided a way in which '404' pages can help others.

 Many of you may already know that our son, Andrew, went missing on September 14, 2007 at the age of 14 and that, to this day, we still have no knowledge of his whereabouts or what has happened to him.

Last week, we were contacted by the new Cub Scout leader from the pack Andrew went to; she had cleared out and found some work Andrew did as a Beaver aged 7. She was kind enough to get in touch and return this to us, another precious memory of our missing son.

FBI introduces app to help find missing children

FBI introduces app to help find missing children | Missing Children | Scoop.it

When you turn your back for just a second and your child disappears, you know how desperate that can make you feel.

The FBI now has an app meant to help you find your missing kid. While 99 times out of 100, if you lose sight of your child, you'll find him safe and sound. But the FBI says its app is for that one time when your kid is gone and you need help.

The app is designed to help you when you're out in a public place with your child – like at the zoo or a Blazer game – it's crowded and suddenly you can't find him. But with the app you've got all his personal information stored at your fingertips.

Your child's picture, name, address, phone number, birthplace, gender, ethnicity, height and weight – everything authorities need to help them find your child can be stored in the app. The information can also be emailed to them.
