    Greetings, Web Sleuths! Byard Duncan here, community manager at Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting.

    I wanted to let you know that we've created a new web tool that we think will help the public (and you folks specifically) more easily find matches between the federal "missing" and "unidentified" databases. We're calling it "The Lost & The Found."

    Here's the link for the tool: http://ow.ly/RHrzf

    And we've written up an explanation of how to use it: http://ow.ly/RHrHV

    We'd love to get your feedback. If you have questions, or an idea about how to improve it, we're all ears. Drop me a note here on the forum, or write me at bduncan@cironline.org. I'll be listening closely here and reporting back immediately to our data visualization team with any and all feedback from the Web Sleuths.

    Thanks so much for taking a look.

    It's a shame they are no longer updating it. Ever since NamUs changed their website format last year, the site is no longer pulling data from NamUs which is a problem.

    I tried emailing Reveal News,, but have not heard back. Their contact info is below if anyone wants to contact them.
