Are you certain your missing family member has never been officially listed in the National Missing Persons Database?

If you are unsure how to search for this information or need assistance navigating through the database, we can quickly provide confirmation. Many families mistakenly believe their case has been officially listed. We encourage all families of missing persons to be certain this case has been filed

Do you want to submit a case but have very little information about your missing family member?

If you are trying to submit a missing persons case but are uncertain about answers to required questions, our research team is highly experienced in helping acquire this information.

Is your family divided on how to proceed?

Many families can find themselves emotionally torn when making decisions about how to best find closure for your heartbreaking loss. Having the right information on hand can help develop a focused direction. We can provide important insight about what lies ahead in the process. For example, did you know certain relatives are unable to provide the correct DNA sample which would be required for a database comparison? Having this information in advance can give you ample time to ensure that the DNA provider(s) are going to be willing to take part in this process when the time comes.

Do you have questions about how to use NAMUS?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have. We can show you how to search the NAMUS database or help with any other general questions you may have. If we are not able to answer your questions ourselves, we can help you research information or point you in the direction of other great resources.

Would you like an experienced advocate to ensure your case is successfully filed?

Submitting an official missing persons case requires more than filling out a form. We are experienced with this process from start to finish and will work on your behalf with official agencies to make sure your loved one is listed.

Improve the way we search

By studying each city's data so extensively, we become experts in how case data is input. We are able to advise users on how to get better results in the national database by utilizing the key tips we discovered during the data collection process.

We are also able to make recommendations for categories to search based on the data we analyze. We want our knowledge base to include a pre-built A.I. which can use our categorical data to help users improve their search efficiency or make recommendations.

And no need to fill out a complicated search form or worry about having an exact keyword match. Our project eliminates any problems with medical jargon, technical terminology, or local slang. 



Revive Cold Cases

Families with disappearances which are now decades old have already tried everything possible to search for their missing loved one. They are frustrated at their lack of options and need new hope.

Categorized Data coupled with a manual verification process makes it possible to find cases which have rarely been seen in national database search results due to errors in relying on an exact keyword match. 

This project includes every case from all 12 cities, no matter how cold that case is. This project will revive interest in researching cold cases and give these families a chance to find an answer. This is a great tool for anyone who is looking for new ideas to approach a cold case.



Solve Difficult Cases

Families of missing persons who are homeless are often unable to open investigations because of mandatory requirements for a missing person to have a last known address. 

Families of missing persons who have drug addictions often prefer to publicly withhold such sensitive information. This project gives them a way to confidentially search for all cases with needle marks and drug use scars so they can turn this insight into a useful clue to help with their search.

This project gives frustrated and helpless families a way to search for an answer.
