Department Overview
About the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs):

On any given day, there are between 80,000 and 90,000 active missing person cases on file with law enforcement agencies across the United States, and over 11,000 active unidentified decedent cases, many of which have remained unsolved for decades. The sheer volume of missing and unidentified person cases poses one of the greatest challenges to law enforcement, medical examiners, and coroners across the country. Most of these cases can only be solved through collaboration, communication, and connection to critical forensic and analytical resources. NamUs fills this need by bringing people, information, forensic science, and technology together to help resolve missing and unidentified person cases across the United States.
