OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – As part of a combined effort, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System are profiling unidentified person cases spanning the last 44 years in Oklahoma.

“Our goal is to bring attention to these valuable resources for Oklahomans who may have friends or relatives who have been missing for many years, and to reunite family members with their loved one's remains,” OHP Captain Ronnie Hampton with the Traffic Homicide Program said. “We ask for the public’s help in sharing information about these cases and this valuable tool, and we appreciate your assistance in contributing to the identification of the future profiled cases.”

The goal will be to identify a living relative and return the unidentified person’s remains back to the family.  NamUs, the National Institute of Justice’s free online system, provides a searchable national resource center of missing persons for medical examiners, law enforcement, and the public from all over the country in hopes of resolving cases.

If you have a missing friend or relative, you can see if a case was generated by searching www.namus.gov. If you have family members or friends who have missing loved ones, no matter how old the incident, you can reach a NamUs representative by email at questions@findthemissing.org or by phone at 1-855-626-7600.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
