I have a feeling this story is not going to end well.- nik
Email Suggestion: Nik, I read the article about what the police have done thus far to locate George Aldrich, and I was struck by the fact that they ping’ed his cell phone, but it seemed that it was only based on when his last call was made. I would think that they should know this, but just in case, it is worth letting them know that I’ve heard that you can ping a cell phone’s location as long as the phone is on. That means that a ping that occurred during his last phone call probably isn’t the most recent data available about his location. They need to ping for the location based on the signal the phone transmits just by being on, if they haven’t already done so.
I can’t find any definitive explanation of this, and I’m not terribly tech savvy, so this could be wrong. However, I was told about this ability personally by an expert in the field of investigative forensics, although there is a chance I misunderstood this person [but I don’t think that I did].
Regardless, they at least need to search for the location based on the last time his phone received a text message, which is probably more recent than his last call as well. The found that family up in Oregon in 2006 this way. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/12/06/national/main2232874.shtml
If I find any information on searches based on the phone merely being on, I’ll send it in.
Best wishes, for him & his family.
