You will need to configure your web server (IIS, Apache, or other) to handle this. If the web server does not recognize the request as being associated with ColdFusion ( *.cfm ) the missing template handler will never be invoked.
You might try associating the web server's file not found 404 error response with a custom web page or URL containing your redirection logic.
I would be interested in hearing how you resolve this challenge. Please post your solution to the forum.
As well as reconfiguring your web server 404 handler to a CFM template
as previously suggested. You can use a form like this -
http:\\myDomain.com\aPage.cfm\Joe. This may or may not appeal to you,
but it is a common method to make "Search friendly urls" that could
fairly easily be adopted for your functionality.
