Find the Missing

Monday, May 16th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Find the Missing offers users access to the NamUs Missing Persons database for free. NamUs was developed in 2006 to put a resource into the hands of the family of missing persons and to organize all the information about missing persons and unidentified remains in one location.

When you arrive at the site, you’ll notice that you can do a search right from the main page by filling in the First Name, Last Name, Sex, and State fields, then click Find to start the search. I appreciate that you don’t have to click into a different page to get right to searching the missing persons database.

The advanced search options can be accessed by clicking Search on the navigation strip and selection New Search. This takes you to a page with very specific search fields like Case Information, Circumstances, Physical/Medical, Clothing and Accessories, Transportation Methods, Images, Documents, and Investigating Agency.  Then if you click on one of those a menu with more options will appear below in order to allow you get super specific.

In the middle of the main page, you’ll find a link to a six minute video called NamUs Behind the Scenes: How it Works, Why it Matters. If you click that link you’ll be taken to another page where you can choose the resolution of the video you watch. Your options are: 320 x 240, 640 x 480, or to download the video. The video explains how the database was created and what its purpose is. I found the video to be filled with interesting information.

I think this is an amazing resource! I’m so glad I could share it with all of you. I hope you’ll pass it on to your friends and families, because you never know who a site like this could help!
