    The NamUs page for this case has been restricted/pulled. Excuse my ignorance, but is there a way to confirm if this UID has been identified?

    That's hard to say. Once someone is identified, their page will give you a "Permission Error..." message. I wish they'd state if someone was actually identified, rather than giving you an "error" message.

    There are also UID's whose info is in the process of being updated that give you the same message. And sometimes they're withdrawn by LE for reasons unknown (though they haven't actually been identified). That's the case with a UID somewhat local to me. She was found in northern KY and her case-file has been pulled though she hasn't been identified.

    Though there are many cases where an ID isn't publicly announced, I'd check the local (to the area of discovery) news media to see if anything is said about an ID. That can be tricky too, in the case of someone being missing from somewhere that's far from the place they're discovered.

    But since the story acts like this ID is "official," we should move this to the Identified forum.
