If you would like to go to the screening of Chocolate, the Nancy video, and Still Alice at LACMA September 23, 4:00 PM, you can get tickets (they are free), and that might be a good idea to make sure you can get in ... I'm not sure whether or not you need to purchase a ticket to get into LACMA itself, but you might want to plan on it. Here is the link again:
Nancy's dad and I attended the latest Bringing Our Loved Ones Home Task Force meeting Thursday. This was a pretty good meeting. Working groups were formed and the participants, largely Government employees were engaged and certainly working towards the goal of improving processes for finding missing people and looking into using technological solutions (i.e., tracking devices) to help.
A side benefit of this meeting is that I get to meet face-to-face with some of the county people I have spoken to on the phone (like the Public Guardian), and also some groups that I have been unable to engage. So, for this visit, I spoke to representatives from the LA County and LA City Fire Departments. To date, I have been unsuccessful in getting emergency response data for people that might fit Nancy's profile. Both gentlemen promised to look into it, and both have contacted me that they are doing so. The LA County has sent me a spreadsheet with 30 or so possibilities that we can now chase down with the hospitals where these women were taken.
I am continuing to visit hospitals asking them to do more advanced database searches. I can only put so many of these on the table at one time because they typically require several follow-up calls. This week I had an unusually high success rate where 4 of the 5 hospitals readily agreed to take a look (however, sometimes this happens, and when they get a little into it, they find some obstacles ....).
And from the last visits, I have had several hospitals that have done the search and not found any matches. This at least crosses these off the list for this type of effort. Significantly, this includes all the county run hospitals.
