Mr. Hudson,

Your e-mail below was forwarded to me this morning for research, and I have not been able to locate your original request from 03/02. I've looked in both our e-mail records and our tracking portal where your request would have been uploaded for processing, and I see no record of us ever having received it. If you can forward to me your original request with the actual e-mailed datestamp (pdf if necessary), I'll enter it and forward it to Police with the correct date. Otherwise, I'll enter your request below as received today.
