    This is really exciting!

    It is having some serious issues today, but as of the end of October, the UK finally has a Police run website for the missing and unidentified. Ta Da!

    Drumroll please UK Missing Person's Bureau

    They need to put a new hamster in the wheel to get it running, but today is the first time it has been in the press and it appears to be under a huge amount of strain. Poor hamster!

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/new-missing-persons-bureau-website-hosts-images-of-unidentified-dead-bodies-to-help-families-trace-loved-ones-8335203.html

    There are numerous press links springing up now, so expect poor performance for the foreseeable future. We never manage to get it quite right, do we?

    If we had a UK dedicated forum, this would look lovely there ;)

    Edit: I have added the link to Resources in the Missing Persons forum and also started a new thread in the Unidentified forum. I feel this link needs to be liberally scattered around so please post it wherever you see fit.

    Here is the Daily Mail link about the website: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...lishes-pictures-unidentified-dead-bodies.html

    This commenter is one sandwich short of a picnic:

    I can't decide whether to facepalm or punch a wall out of total embarrassment.

    Thanks Amber for this thread, it is really exciting and could yield some results for the families of the missing from all over the world. Word needs to get out. I shall start tweeting the link regularly

    Meanwhile, the dear little pets who need all this protection are probably surgically grafted to some sort of games controller and oblivious to their mad parent's ranting (or in their rooms downloading porn). :wink:
