Adding race/sex to cases, and deep cleaning

So now that the search page includes drop-down menus for both sex and race, I am having to go back over every case and note their sex and race. This won’t show up on the casefiles from your point of view, but unless I’ve made a selection for the race and sex, that case won’t show up if you search by race and sex.

I am also doing a sort of “deep cleaning” as I go: going back and checking to see if the cases are still listed with the source, and purging those who aren’t, since those people have probably been found. I haven’t done a really big purge in forEVER. So far I’ve removed over 200 outdated cases!

Because there are so many cases, it’s taking forever. I would estimate it will take around 48 hours of work total. It is very boring. But it must be done.

    Meaghan, take your time with this work. Do not rush into this and sacrifice your health.

      I am trying to keep that in mind and take breaks every few hours. I don’t want to throw out my back again.

    Hello Meaghan, I’ve been searching for a case that I remember reading about on CharleyProject a long time ago. It’s about a woman who disappeared while hiking with a friend. The odd thing about this case is just how quickly the woman disappeared, according to the friend’s account. One second she was there and the next, she was gone. I also remember a sketch of a person of interest was added to the case. If it rings a bell, please let me know. (You probably get tons of requests like this and I don’t know whether you ever asked to stop – if you did, please ignore and I apologize).

      I can think of quite a few hikers who disappeared in a matter of a few minutes, but none with a suspect sketch involved.
