Insert a single line of code into your site's error pages
and help visitors find missing people nearby
Add an unintrusive banner with photos of missing people to your site's 404 error pages
in the off-chance that someone who visits your site might recognize them.
A staggering number of people go missing every year. In the United States alone, a child goes missing every 40 seconds. While immediate media attention sometimes helps find the missing, a large number of these cases continue to remain unsolved.
When a user of your site navigates to a page that does not exist, either because they mistyped a URL or because they followed a dead link, your server responds with a special error:
HTTP 404 - Page not found.
These error pages, commonly called 404 pages, offer no content to your site's visitors, apart from posting a notice of error.
Simply including one line of code will enable an unintrusive banner at the bottom of your site's 404 error page. When visitors click on the banner, they will be shown photographs of missing people from their geographical region.
Results are tailored to your visitor's location to improve the chances of a sighting.
We hope that this will lead someone to recognize one of the missing people, and help bring them back home.
