Pirate FM Website to Help Search for Missing Children

Pirate FM is launching a new initiative to try to bring home missing children.

Their photo will be displayed when someone gets an error on our website, along with a brief biography and a contact number to call with any sightings.

It will go on the standard "404 Page" which is displayed by websites when a page can not be found.

James Wenger is in charge of technology at Pirate FM. He said: "We're part of the local community and actually we're part of the wider global community so we thought we'd use it for something that really matters - and finding missing children really matters. Whether it's someone heading over to a foreign country who is close to the age of being able to make that decision or somebody else who has been abducted, there are thousands of these children across Europe."

He is hoping other Cornish companies do the same: "Not just in our area, in fact, anywhere around the world people could do this. Provided you have administrative control of your web server you can put that code on and serve up these Not Found pages. Really anyone who cares about this, it would be a good thing to do."

You can find out how to help the Not Found Project here.
