Can anyone view these cases?

The Indianapolis Police Department has put up a website of missing persons from their area. There are several cases that aren’t on Charley. But whenever I click on any of the pictures, this happens:

401unauthorized

What does that message MEAN, exactly? Anyone else have any idea how to view those links? I can write up the cases without any further information than is on the list, but if there is more info I’d of course like to have access to it.

    I was able to open it, maybe your firewall settings wouldn’t let it through.

      I can view the list of cases, but not the individual pages when I click on the pictures. I tried it with a different browser and that didn’t work either. Blarg.

    I can’t view them either.

    It means that the person who setup the site forgot to open that directory and folder to anonymous users. Because they’re testing within their network, it works for them. Apparently no one has told the web guy about the issue. I say that because its a rookie error and super quick to correct.

      Okay, who wants to volunteer to call them and tell them about the error?

      *crickets chirping*

      I wish these people would check their links before they issue a press release.

    I submitted the issue to their webmaster. Now it’s just a matter of time to see how quickly they get to it!

    Cooool!! I’ve been looking forever for a pic of Kimberly Blackburn, and they have it on that site. She’s been in NamUs with a No Photo casefile for a couple of years now.
