Missing Person Behavior Reports & Data
When I was in Australia (2000-2005), I worked with Victorian Police Search & Rescue and the National SAR Council to gather and codify about 600 lost-person cases. In 2006 I delivered the final data analysis to the National SAR Council. This was also one of the first datasets in ISRID, and I used the scripts I wrote for that to analyze the New Zealand and the Washington State datasets. The scripts are available by request. I might put them on GitHub someday.
