A Nationwide Missing Person's Awareness System



How to identify a victim of human trafficking:

Everyone has the potential to discover a human trafficking situation. While the victims may sometimes be kept behind locked doors, they are often hidden right in front of us.


It takes a Nation to be aware...

It only takes ONE to recognize a missing person...

The  System

Approximately 9,000 highly viewing methods will be provided within the United States


 NamUs: Will provide missing person's information through live stream for public viewing pursposes.


How the system will operate:

Operating multiple visual methods from one location will provide a more structured and organized means of increasing nationwide exposure for immediate alerts and all missing and unidentified persons.

The Kiosk part of the system is capable of updating approximately every 2-5 seconds, which will prove crucial for immediate alerts. Missing person’s information through the Kiosk part of the system will continue to rotate approximately every 7-10 seconds, depending on location.

Immediate alerts will be color-coded for time awareness and will remain in the lower right corner of the screen for up to 72 hours.  If multiple alerts are implemented, these alerts will rotate approximately every 10 seconds in the lower right corner of the screen.


Billboard location will determine the amount of rotation time.

PSA commercial air time schedules will determine the amount of time and amount of times information will appear for public viewing.

Gas pump toppers will be scheduled to alternate with other viewable information unless it is designed just for rotating immediate alerts and missing persons information.
