Trace Labs: A Global Approach to the Missing Persons Dilemma

Every year, more people go missing. Those who are not immediately found are often victims of human trafficking and other terrible fates. This problem requires a modern and scalable solution that can help mitigate the risk to our society. To solve this problem, Trace Labs built the “Search Party” platform to allow the community to collect and process open source intelligence during virtual operations known as Trace Labs OSINT Search Parties. Trace Labs has taken the traditional Search & Rescue approach and evolved it to be virtual and global, which allows anyone around the world to use their cyber skills for good.

"Trace Labs is playing a vital role ..."

"Trace Labs is playing a vital role in response to the epidemic of missing persons and children around the world. This crowdsourced approach not only increases awareness of this problem, it supplies law enforcement with actionable intelligence that they likely do not have the time or expertise to create."
