Bloodhound: Phoenix startup hopes app will help locate missing persons faster

A group of entrepreneurs in Phoenix will soon be beta testing a new application that could be used to help keep track of individuals most vulnerable to going missing — the elderly.

The application, Bloodhound, is designed to work with a small Bluetooth enabled device that is to be worn by the individual. This can be placed in a pocket, a wallet, on keys or a necklace.

Project spokesman Andrew Jones said the app does not actively track or monitor a person’s whereabouts, but is designed to help locate an individual quickly after being reported missing.
