Analytical Services Booklet

The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) is more than just a database; its resources and services are force multipliers that assist law enforcement agencies and medical examiner/coroner offices in the resolution of missing, unidentified, and unclaimed person cases.

The NamUs Analytical and Case Support Division provides expanded investigative resources on cases reported to NamUs.
