Tool for finding missing persons using their picture during disasters

TLDR: During disasters, it may become difficult to reconnect with loved ones because of overloaded phone lines, lost electronics due to panic. Using the FindMe platform, those looking for missing loved ones can upload their pictures (along with other identifying information), to the website or app - those who are at centers and have access to a phone can upload pictures of those who are displaced, or those who are impacted can volunteer to have photo(s) taken of them, and provide personal information. That way, using machine learning and image recognition, or platform can determine highly probable matches, and potentially reconnect the separated.
