    The Unclaimed Persons Database (UPD) @ NamUS

    The UnClaimed Persons database (UCP) contains information about deceased persons who have been identified by name, but for whom no next of kin or family member has been identified or located to claim the body for burial or other disposition.

    https://claimus.org/

    ETA: Members can alphabetize the list by clicking "thread" at the top left area of the index page where it says "thread/thread starter".

    Is the NamUs unclaimed kept up to date? I have googled several names from there only to find that WS has a "match" listed here.
    Eternally optimistic!

    Hoping to find:

    I am wondering about this as well, but also for the California unclaimed database. I worked on several of these a while back and see some have been marked as "Match" or "Resolved" here, but the databases all show the cases as still open. Same for some other ones that I read through recently. The case links give no indication the cases are closed, but Websleuths has them marked as "Match" or "Resolved"?

    I occasionally come back to this part of the forum just to check to see if any more of the "Match" and "Identified" flagged threads are reflected the same way in ClaimUs or elsewhere like the California database. It's beginning to worry me that it seems quite a few still show as open. I understand if LE or points of contact are slow to update, but so many? Is this an issue where the threads need to be followed up on and the case contacts re-contacted? Given how much research work has been put in by volunteers like LittleMissSunshine, Pink Panther, and sallen, it would be a pity to see all that research go to waste. On the other hand, if these are all matched and identified, and it's all just LE and the points of contact being slow, I'll feel much better that these people were reunited with family. Anyone have any guidance on this?
