    Arrow Has your case been entered into NAMUS??

    ****Fellow Sleuthers****

    NAMUS/IdentifyUS is looking for platforms to educate families, law enforcement and medical examiners on the centralized databases established for missing persons and UID's. Please provide the following link for your contacts regardless of whether or not the case is cold:
    https://www.findthemissing.org/

    "This site provides an opportunity for families, law enforcement agencies and investigators to search nationwide for missing persons using a variety of powerful search features. Anyone may search the database, but by registering in the system both law enforcement professionals and the general public will also be able to:
    • Add new missing persons cases
    • Add physical and circumstantial details, photographs, dental contacts and other critical pieces of information to a case
    • Create and print missing persons posters
    • Track multiple cases as information is added to the system
    With your help, we can increase the number of missing persons cases solved each year providing closure for families and law enforcement officials nationwide."

    In order to maintain the integrity of the data entered, NAMUS wants to limit the people entering the information to those who have the most accurate resources-please encourage your contacts to make sure their cases are entered.

    Believe, do I contact the LE in charge of the investigation and respectfully request they enter the missing person into the Namus database? TIA for advice.

    Exclamation It's time to make a difference...

    Let's get these cases into NAMUS. NAMUS has 15,072 active cases in it's database.

    15,072.


    There are routinely 800K people missing on the books in any given year.

    Please register on the NAMUS website and get your cases in there. They will be assigned to a NAMUS case manager who will reach out to you or LE to make sure the maximum amount of information is entered.

    This database runs against the John and Jane Doe databases. We have to utilize the technology available to maximize the results we need to make a difference. Please take the burden off of cash strapped LE. We need to beef up this database so it can work the way it is intended too.

    I will spread the word about NAMUS. It is a wonderful tool for missing and unidentified persons. Many families of the colder cases are unaware of NAMUS because we didn't have the technology then that we have today. I just entered my 1985 case this year because I was unaware of NAMUS. I will be sure to provide the link to all my contacts.

    I recently started a thread for a woman missing since 1991 from Macon, GA, after reading a story about the case on an area newspaper's web site.

    I can't find the missing person in NAMUS.

    I'm not LE or a family member of the missing person -- but I surely feel her case should be in NAMUS. What can I do?

    Here's the WS thread: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...acon-June-1991
