Show photos of missing persons
THE EDITOR, Sir:
I am just seeing a report of a missing banker. The police is asking the public for help in finding this person who they say was last seen in a pink blouse and light blue jeans.
At the risk of being accused of repeating myself, can I ask the police to provide a picture of this missing person? Every next woman has a pink blouse and light blue jeans.
I have mentioned this glaring weakness in police work in the past and am really surprised that the usefulness of this procedure continues to be missing in their operations.
In the meantime, as a law-abiding citizen who is committed to supporting our police, anywhere I see a female in pink blouse and light blue jeans, I will alert the police.
Could this be one reason why their success rate leaves much to be desired?
