    Exclamation 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.

    Idaho4Groenes has entered Adji Dejir. Dreamweaver entered Hassani Campbell.

    Maybe we can keep a bit of a list of who WS members have entered into the NamUs database, post any tips, tricks or frustrations here in this thread? Or requests to have someone entered, if the WSer does not wish to do it themselves.

    This might also be a good place to alert other members when you are entering someone so that there is not a duplication of effort.

    TIP: When entering missing adults, be sure to use more than one source if your primary source is NCMA (National Center for Missing Adults, www.theyaremissed.org). NCMA is short on resources, and struggles to keep cases updated. I entered one case, and received an email that the adult had been found at the beginning of the year. So just be sure to check! (And if you do happen to find out that someone has been found, please forward that on to NCMA. They are extremely greatful for any help.)

    This question is for those who have successfully submitted a missing person case to Namus:
    How long does it take for a case to show up on Namus after you submitted it?
    The first one I submitted was 2 weeks ago.
    Thanks

    Ok, I am not sure when it happened, but I just checked and my first case got published into Namus! I submitted a case from 1976 (finding it here actually) and now this person has a missing person profile in Namus! yay! One down!

    Exclamation If you want 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.
