    Re: has & did

    You can. a) would suggest that the person's whereabouts are not currently known. b) would suggest that the person's whereabouts are now known but they weren't known at some point previously.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
