Message to Jax
Jax? Jax. Jax! I long for the days of the now forgotten post master. Jax, i hope you can hear me. I have been musing on the nature of the situation with the missing kids and have an idea that will net us the bastard responsible.
“Alan, this is Roy, you dialed all of us. But at least you managed to get Jax included this time. Anyways continue with this amazing plan of yours”
This evening I was forced to duck out of the in-climate weather and in doing so ended up in a rather particular gentleman’s club in town. Nice enough place, though the name escapes me just now. While waiting for the weather to pass, i was sitting at the bar when i noticed something unusual. The bartender had glowing lips and teeth! In fact, her white top was also illuminated as were her rather conspicuous undergarments. In fact, some of her tatoos also glowed in the light. And then i noticed that i too glowed. Whereas before i had assumed that i was presentable, i was in fact covered in lint that i hadn’t been able to see. it was only under this remarkable purple light that i was able to make out the state of my attire.
as i sat there marvelling it occurred to me that this is the solution to catching the invisible child-stealer. the video provides us a point of ingress for them and we know where they end up in the place, whatever route they take. what we are lacking however, is the path they take, and information regarding whether the snatches are random or targeted.
my idea is to track invisibility using invisibility. We need to get our hands on some kind of ‘lint’ that is only visible under the correct ‘light’ conditions and cover an area with it. when the filth enters the area, the ‘lint’ will stick to them and leave a trail which we can track using our special light. Obviously it needn’t be lint per se, any chemical or biological agent will suffice, as long as it is invisible and inert until certain lighting or other chemicals are applied. we could coat the door handles of the rooms, even mix it into the janitor’s cleaning solution and thus get entire floors marked.
then using either an appropriate light or chemical mist-er, we can track them down. we can track and trace them invisibly even while they believe that they are invisible. In fact, this is exactly what happened to us in Lagos with comlinks, rather than chemicals. It is easy enough to spot if you know what to look for, but knowing what to look for is the entire battle. we would know their path through the hospital whether they were looking for a specific person (by seeing if they touched more than one door or window), where they got into the building, where they left the building and where, as far as it goes, they went when the left. Even a direction of travel is more than we have right now.
If we were to seed the entire parking area and all entrance ways to a distance of say 25 meters, we wold be able to track anyone who enters at night back to where ever they are going. Also, we can increase security inside the place. the hope would be to draw the abductor close to the building so that they only see the new security features, like newly installed cameras and more security personnel when they get close. They can exfiltrate without detection and we can track them. they can get caught/seen by the increase security presence and they can run and we can track them as well. the children need never be in danger but even if they slip the increased security, they will have tripped our primary detector and can be tracked back to where ever they are taking the kids.
what we need from you would be to acquire the appropriate ‘lint’ and not let anyone know that you are creating a trap.
and how would you avoid the janitors, kids, nurses, security guards and doctors from spreading your ‘lint’?
