Create a neat way for a Missing Persons Search Interview

Hi I am wanting some of everyone’s creative juices to help me create a Search and Rescue Interview that my MC Detective will have with the mother of the missing person and the fiance. So people don’t think I am in the wrong category, I am looking specifically to donacode tricks.

Are you looking for specific dialogue or visual ideas? Is the MC questioning them about the disappearance or are they just making a statement to the MC? Cause I have both! :smile:

Dialogue

These are all based on my legal system where I live, so it might be different depending on where your story is set.

  • Have your MC state her rank, the station she works at, and her ID number (if she has one)
  • Have her tell them that they’re free to leave at any time and that they aren’t under arrest.
  • Tell them she wants to question them about the last known whereabouts of their child.
  • Ask if the missing person had any habits of going out late at night alone / going out from the house independently
  • Ask if the missing person has done something like this before.
  • Have fun with it :joy:
Visual Ideas
  • You could maybe have the mother and her fiancé sit behind a table overlay and the MC as idle_rear in front, then alternate for each different view.
  • You could even have a side view where all characters can be facing ‘forward’ behind the table.
  • Include a notebook on the table
  • Include a tape recorder/video recorder
  • Maybe a walkie talkie?

Thanks for replying and thank you also for the effort you put in, I appreciate it. I was thinking of doing a questionnaire that the reader can participate in, so like use a choices template. They are visiting them at their home, To avoid getting flagged, I might put this post in the art resources because I was thinking of making the detective visualise the outfit the character was wearing when they went missing, what animation they were doing etc.

Oooooh that’d be so interesting! What’s the story name?

Bailey Files! is my series and the first short story/case is called The case of the Missing Bride to Be.
