Over the last few years drone, especially when outfitted with high-resolution thermal cameras, have shown to be very effective tools in finding missing persons.
On October 11, at around 8:30 PM, deputies from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office were able to locate a 93-year-old missing woman, who had been missing for three hours with a drone in four minutes, according to KansasCity.com.
The missing woman was found in a dark farm field. She was exhausted but in good health.
The video below shows how the drone with a high-resolution thermal camera can fly at a high altitude and still locate the missing person with ease. You can see how the drone operator adjusts the settings on the screen to make the heat signature of a human body stand out against the background.
