National Missing and Unidentified Persons System NamUs

I have told you all about NamUs before and I want to remind you about it again as we approach National Missing Children’s Day on March 25.

NamUs is a comprehensive national database on missing persons. 

If you have ANY information about specific missing-person cases you can go to the NamUs website  and enter it into a free online database.  If you are searching for a missing loved one, you can go to NamUs and search.

This database is remarkable.  It is accessible to medical examiners, coroners, law enforcement and the general public.   In the past, the only national repository of missing-persons’ data was the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, which can be used only by law-enforcement agencies.

For more information, see www.namus.gov
