“The first 24 hours are the most critical, but for the police the first 24 seconds are the most critical.”
Sheboygan, WI (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
With the number of high profile stories of missing people seemingly more frequent in the last month, more national awareness has been brought to this troubling issue. The statistics are alarming. According to the FBI, nearly 1,800 Americans are reported missing every day. While this number includes both juveniles and adults, most of those missing are under 18 years of age.
A progressive new service launched this month now provides the silent voice for loved ones suffering the anguish of a missing family member. IfIGoMissing.com provides users with a secure and user-friendly interface to store important information. In the event that a child or adult goes missing, a designated user can login and report the loved one as missing, and provide the contact information to law enforcement immediately.
The online service makes it easy for families to put all of the important information in a secure place. “This is more of a proactive approach,” said Jeremy Reynolds, founder of IfIGoMissing.com. “The site is a means for you to store all of the information that the police would want to have at their fingertips.”
At a time when emotions run high and concern for the loved one overtakes logical thought, this is the silent voice that does the talking. The type of information that can be stored on IfIGoMissing.com varies – from hair and eye color to nicknames, the user can select what goes into the server, which uses high-performance encryption methods to secure the information.
Providing this important data to law enforcement in a timely manner can mean the difference in quickly locating a lost loved one. “The first 24 hours are the most critical, but for the police the first 24 seconds are the most critical,” said Reynolds.
