What is Search Party?

Search Party is a mobile application that co-ordinates the public in searching for missing persons. GPS tracking is utilized for individuals currently searching for missing persons to generate a 'heat map', which draws attention to areas that have not been recently searched. This app hopes to improve the detection of missing persons by improving the efficiency of volunteers using the app.
