CrimeDoor Reinvents the Missing Person Poster for 21st-Century Mobile User and Partners With Non-Profit, the DoeNetwork

The Company Hopes These Posters Will Solve and Bring Awareness to Unsolved and Cold Cases That Lack Media Attention


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CrimeDoor, the award-winning true crime news app, has created a new, visually powerful way to raise public awareness around unresolved cases that leave families devastated. The startup tech platform, which has ranked as high as number four in the Apple App store for news, uses groundbreaking technology to create Augmented Reality 3D posters that deliver critical information for the true crime community to try and help solve cases. This innovative approach will push out missing person and unsolved murder case content to masses like never before.

With the simple click of a link from their mobile devices, users will have a 3D AR poster available right in their living room or space, with all the pertinent information for the case on display. There's also an option to then "Learn More," which connects directly to the CrimeDoor app for additional free content, including any press articles, podcasts, and relevant media curated in one place on the case to date.

The first Missing Person posters to debut on CrimeDoor will include Lauren Cho and Daniel Robinson, missing since June. There will also be a "Wanted" poster featuring the information for Brian Laundrie, who is currently a fugitive in the Gabby Petito case, and for future cases where law enforcement is seeking an arrest.

"Over the last few decades, there has been very little innovation in terms of the traditional missing person flyers, AMBER alerts or similar ways of alerting the public and requesting help. This innovation speaks to the current mobile user by creating an interactive and immediate way of creating awareness while delivering detailed information to the public. With the advancements in technology in nearly every area, it was time for someone to take the lead in crime," said CrimeDoor co-founder Lauren Mandt.

Current AR posters that will debut imminently in CrimeDoor include the following

In addition, CrimeDoor is announcing an official partnership with the non-profit organization, the DoeNetwork. The DoeNetwork is a 100% volunteer organization devoted to assisting investigating agencies in bringing closure to national and international cold cases concerning missing and unidentified persons. 

"The DoeNetwork decided to partner with CrimeDoor to help amplify our mission of being a voice for the voiceless and seeking justice for victims and their families," says Todd Matthews, Program Director, Media & Public Relations Liaison at the DoeNetwork. "Using their technology will help us solve cold cases for families seeking answers." 

CrimeDoor will help by providing additional exposure to cases and by utilizing Augmented Reality 3D technology to find credible potential matches between missing and unidentified persons so that the DoeNetwork can provide all relevant information to the appropriate investigating agencies.

"CrimeDoor is humbled and proud to utilize our 3D Augmented Reality technology to help drive awareness to current cases and highlight lesser-known, often overlooked cases. We are hopeful that our new partnership with the DoeNetwork will also help bring in tips to solve cold cases and give a voice to crime victims who are no longer able to advocate for themselves," said Neil Mandt, co-founder of CrimeDoor.

CrimeDoor has been vetted by both police officers and FBI agents as a way where users can aid in solving open cases. CrimeDoor provides high-quality content and information about crimes that offer the public a chilling and factual view of each crime scene.

About DoeNetwork: 

The DoeNetwork is a volunteer organization devoted to assisting law enforcement in solving cold cases concerning unexplained disappearances and unidentified victims from North America, Australia, and Europe. It is our mission to give the nameless back their names and return the missing to their families. We hope to accomplish this mission in three ways: by giving the cases exposure on our website; by having our volunteers search for clues on these cases as well as making possible matches between missing and unidentified persons; and, lastly, through attempting to get media exposure for these cases that need and deserve it. We cooperate with several missing persons, law enforcement agencies, and medical examiners and strive to work with more in the future.
