    ****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.

    Thanks for posting this Believe...it is now a month since it was posted and I checked the stats today...about six months since the NamUs site became active:

    MP Case Breakdown
    Total Cases: 1601
    Open Cases: 1554 - 97.06%
    Closed Cases: 47 - 2.93%

    UID Case Breakdown
    Total Cases: 5065
    Open Cases: 4942 - 97.57%
    Closed Cases: 122 - 2.41%
    NamUs Aided: 7 - 0.14%

    By bumping this thread, it is my hope that family members here on WS (or those who have contact with families of the missing) will either enter their loved ones or encourage their local poice to do so.

    When you look at the numbers, of closed cases and NamUs aided, you realize this system has great potential. When you look at the number of cases entered, you realize that the word is not getting out to those who could be entering their loved ones names.

    The passage of The Help Find The Missing Act (Billy's Law) will provide incentives for law enforcement agencies as well as provide funding for the NamUs database.

    Time is running out for ALL of us to contact our Senators and all the Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee for support and Co-Sponsorship.

    PLEASE go to the link for Peace4 the Missing ("Command Central") and find out why this is so important for the families of ALL missing and unidentified persons and how YOU can help. This must be done NOW, we only have until the end of July or all is lost. Jan Smolinski, mother of missing Billy Smolinski, has worked tirelessly for over 2 years to get this going. Please help us.

    I am just a general user and use Namus Everyday, I find many missing persons and unidentified cases are not getting updated. I found quite a few matches based on information provided in the news. Updates are not allowed by general users.

    Anyone else finding the same thing?

    I agree it has great potential.
    I think it would be great if we could post a note and have it go to the person who entered the file.

    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 am unable to post a new a thread. I can post replies but not a new thread. I have a possible match and would like thoughts etc..but no post "new thread" button. Neither the unidentified nor missing person seem to have an exisiting thread. I figured a moderator could help.
    Thank you

    I'm having the same problem. I can't find anything about the cases on here, and I wanted to get an opinion before I sent it to their case workers but I wasn't sure what forum to put it in so I just sent it to the two case works I thought may have matching missing/found persons.
