National Site Helps ID remains, Find the Lost

April 16, 2009

I found this article to be very enlightening and hopeful to those whose have someone missing in their lives.   The article is about missing cases in the U.S..  At this time there are over 100,000 active cases.  This number is absurdly high, and a system that the National missing persons site has begun should begin to help reduce this number.  The site is called “NamUs”.  It is a combination of 2 new bases, combined to be more efficient in matching information about the unidentified remains to missing persons.  Not only can officials get on the site, but the average person can too.  They can put in information about the person which can help solve the mystery.  This helps take a load off the officers, and increase the possibilities of solving the case.

If you have ever lost someone, you know that you can’t grieve properly and move on without knowing what happened.  Finding the body can help others have more closure and allow them to grieve properly.  I believe this is a step in the right direction in finding a missing person.
