Today the Michigan State Police are holding their very first Michigan Missing Person Day. The event begins at 4:00 p.m. at Ford Field.
Law enforcement agencies will be talking about the new technology used in disappearance cases, including the one that I have been trying to bring awareness to, NamUs, a searchable database that allows users to enter physical characteristics of a missing person, which will then cross reference with details of the remains of unidentified persons.
Free child ID kits will also be available.
Families of missing persons are encouraged to bring photographs, dental records and radiographs, said Det. Trooper Sarah Krebs. “We’re hoping the families of missing people can get together and network and find support.”
