UNT Health Science Center to manage NamUs
The UNT Health Science Center has been awarded a grant from the National Institute of Justice to manage and administer the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).
NamUs is a national clearinghouse for information related to missing person and unidentified decedent cases across the United States. Through secure online databases, medical examiners, coroners, law enforcement officers, family members of missing persons and concerned citizens can access varying levels of information in NamUs to assist in the resolution of thousands of unsolved cases.
NamUs also provides data management and forensic resources for missing and unidentified cases at no cost to investigating agencies or searching family members.
Additional information about NamUs can be found at www.NamUs.gov.
