I think you are way over thinking it. If a report only has 50-100 characters available that's all the information they want. You have to stop thinking in terms of what you want them to know or think they should know and instead focus on what *they* want to know. If they only want a yes ot no they are not interested in no I didn't see a name tag but she was wearing a jacket that may have obscured it. They want a yes or no based on what you could see.
