Unvaluable help to port SqlHierarchyId to .Net Core (anonymous on how the SQL Server hierarchyid data type works (kind of))

I remember when I was young, there was a drive at various establishments (like Blockbuster) to let the police create a profile of children to purportedly aid the police in finding them should they ever turn up missing. When I was grew older, I realized that this was merely a scheme to create a fingerprint database of much of America's (or at least San Diego's) youth.Comments
The profile consisted of the police fingerprinting each child, and videotaping them while they answered some questions about their hobbies, personality, etc. Of course my mother fell for it and made me run through the whole rigamarole.
Now let's assume I got lost somehow and was missing. What do the police have to work with? My fingerprints and a video of me answering some questions. Are they going to:
I'm convinced that the answers are no, no, no, and no. They might use the fingerprints to identify me if I was found dead, but I can't see them going through all this trouble for that. If a child old enough to be profiled like I was did happen to be found alive, the child would have been old enough to know it's full name and home city, and probably it's home phone number or address, too (I knew all four by that age). So I don't see problems returning found children to their parents having been the impetus behind this whole effort.
So why did they do it? To get fingerprints and personality profiles of many or most upcoming adults, I believe. What else could it have been?
