Hope everyone is ready for this one. Today I contacted a Michigan Police Agency about a missing person case. Surprise was, even after I gave them the case number, information, NAMUS info, ect, they could not find this person as missing , a report, or her reported missing at any time. They had no idea in the world that this woman has been missing since 1998. They did however find an arrest and release record about 2 months prior to her disappearance. NOTE: If she is in NAMUS, she was entered by an authorized user so its not like some guy just spread the word she is missing and people started posting her. She is also listed on National Center for Missing Adults and multiple other websites.
To the Detectives credit, he pulled in a second person to help look for the case, transfered me to another department and then filled out a request for the records office to dig into it. While this Detective can not be blamed for this and at least he is taking the steps to find out what is going on, I can not help but to wonder how many other missing people there are that the "investigating" agency does not even know they are missing. People like us "don't know what we are doing and need to leave it up to LE".......theres a win win situation. Will keep you posted when/if I hear any updates.
