Template for Non Existant Profiles

If I am transcribing an image of something like a Family Bible, and I don't want to spend the time right now to lookup, connect/create, and link every name in the source, is there a placeholder template that I can use to make it look like a link to another person, but have it be red so that it's clear that it doesn't exist yet?

Example [[Overton-1650]] exists, but Justin Jr doesn't exist. Ideally it would work like the the citation needed template.

Ex. Justin Jr {{Citation needed}}doesn't exist

Writing [[Justin Jr]] will give you a red link - but the link won't offer you the possibility to create Justin that way.

Thanks!
But I haven't checked if there are recommendations against it.
I'm only using for a single freespace anyway. So it'll be easy for me to change if I need to.
