Submission + - Software used to find missing autistic man alive (startribune.com)

Relayman writes: "Software developed by a police officer was instrumental in finding a missing autistic man alive in Minnesota. The software analyzes the terrain of the search area and the type of vegetation that covers the area, takes into consideration what searchers have already covered and develops probabilities and recommendations for further searches. In this case, it suggested searching an area again. This software, dubbed Search Tracker, was written by St. Louis County Sheriff's Rescue Squad Lt. Rick Slatten, according to the article.

Technical note: I believe that the original article was in the Duluth News Tribune, but they require that you sign in to read it."
