Well the problem with keeping the viewers in the dark is that you will not find any objective data that way, it's not effective. I realize even though the RVers are tasked with solving this case, but how is it possible to solve a case if you're not even told about the circumstances relevant to the case or "Frontloading"?
How can an viewer be expected to strive for relevant data related to the case and disregard useless data already known if they're told nothing?
Also this has obvious real life applications, if you're going to RV on the spot are you going to write it down in an envelope and follow protocol?
Or you simply "JUST DO IT", which method do you think is faster?
I suppose that you are not really familiar with remote viewing; You are saying that the more you know beforehand, the faster you can finish.
If you try the opposite approach you might get some useful data.
Hmm, yes Slorri states the obvious in this case. If and when you ever conceive of yourself as being as capable as Slorri is, myself and others would like to know.
What you describe as RV is not what is normally considered Remote Viewing. What you describe is using intuition and applying critical thinking, which is not remote viewing.
As far as frontloading, you're wrong, there are at least two dozen viewers currently active on this site that have solved cases with no information other than it was a missing individual. Many times they did not even know it was an operational session.
There are naturals that do not use any system or methodology what so ever other than pure intuition who take a set of coordinate numbers as they are called simply to do session tracking, who have identified a place or object in one word. While that in itself is not true RV method, when done within protocol it is. Big difference.
We all have our own take on what psychic phenomenon is, but Remote Viewing within blind and double blind protocol is the highest standard to which we hold ourselves. If you've never had the experience of an 8 martini hit within protocol regardless of methodology, I feel sorry for you, keep trying.
I don't believe you have been fully exposed to the art of Remote Viewing and how blessed/skilled some people are. I have tasked people on dozens of artifacts, different planets, historical events and future events where they have hit correctly in their sessions with no more than a task number.
It is bigger than you think and some people here are far far better than you can imagine if you don't think people can do this without frontloading. You would be very mistaken.
As a suggestion, I would point you to some of Marv's missives concerning frontloading and feedback, especially closing the feedback loop in a timely manner.

BTW - After the original Portuguese Police bungled and fumbled their investigation it has been reopened within the last few days and I am quite certain some of these old sessions people did on this case will prove out correct.
