Mr. Knight,

This is in reference to your e-mail regarding a FOIA request. A name search did not provide a corresponding case number to the individual you provided in your e-mail. When a case is opened we send a formal acknowledgement letter with a case number.

It appears we do not have the information you claim your office sent. You may wish to send in a new FOIA request. Before you submit a new request please read the instructions and pay particular attention to the "Checklist for Personal Records" and the "Certification of Identity".
