In Ghana, kidnap cases are continually on the rise. Each day we hear cases of individuals of all ages going missing, with the local police forces claiming to solve most of these cases, yet the ratio of missing to discovered individuals is as high as ever. In Western countries, there are systems put in place to aid in the location of missing individuals. In Ghana however, the way in which this is done is by sharing information on the missing individuals on different social media platforms. This method of location is problematic as most individuals that go missing are not found for several years. In this project, a tracking device is designed and implemented to aid the families of missing individuals locate their loved ones. The results from this project identify that the location of a missing individual can be accurately determined with the aid of the tracking device. As such, the device can be used in conjunction with local police authorities in an effort to reduce the rate at which individuals go missing in the country.
