Welcome to LostNMissing Inc.'s Unidentified

Please bear with us as we build our database.

When comparing unidentified to those missing, remember if DNA was completed...there is a good chance that you don't want to try and compare to a missing person who ALSO had DNA tested and completed.  You'll want to focus on those who are missing that have either never been reported missing (in the case you are making recognition from someone you believe you know) or to someone missing that has NOT had DNA tested.  You can learn if DNA was tested on missing at www.namus.gov by looking up the missing person.

All posts on this site will give the original link from where we gathered the information.

**SPECIAL NOTE:  If found PRIOR TO 1970, they will be categorized as found in 1970 as Blogspot does not enable us to date earlier.  Example: Unknown male child found Feb. 25, 1957 can be found on the Feb 25, 1970 link.



TIPS FOR COMPARING MISSING TO UNIDENTIFIED,
by LostNMissing, Inc.
KEY:
UID = Unidentified Person
MP = Missing Person
Decedent= deceased person
Codis = Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) is the FBI's program of support for criminal justice DNA databases as well as the software used to run these databases. It is commonly used to determine matches of an MP and UID. Most law enforcement, and medical examiners submits DNA which is entered into CODIS on a UID. A scan is done to see if a match. In some cases, prisons and those who have been swabbed for a potential crime match have their DNA entered, as well. While numerous labs may do the actual testing, it is the database that is used to compare a missing with an unidentified as that is where the results are kept.
The "normal person" who has blood drawn in a doctor office will NOT have it entered into CODIS, nor if blood is donated. Note: When donating blood for an organ match, or bone marrow, they
contract with individual certified laboratories that test and may hold results for a number of years. (Such as the Bone Marrow Registery) One well known national laboratory with an extensive database is Bode Cellmark, in Texas, who has a large forensic analysis department.
Earthly Body: Usually an "intact body" or fairly recent "human remains" that we call "earthly body" as we feel that is a more comforting than a deceased body, or human remains. It is
also the belief that we all live in our "earthly bodies" and one day when passing will leave this body behind and our souls are what are still "living" beyond this life. Most all of our
team believe strongly heaven exists, however, some people may have other beliefs. Regardless, no matter what one believes...it is the earthly body that is left behind for families to
bury or cremate. It is not "the person" , but the earthly body they inhabited while on earth.
BEFORE PROCEEDING, PLEASE READ OUR TIPS:
When searching to match an Unidentified with a Missing Person, note it is very important that one is very detailed oriented and compares statistics
(date missing and date located) as well as the physical descriptions. I cannot tell you how many times we are emailed, or messaged, and a caring person in the public is "sure"
that a UID is possibly an MP. They will provide links and the first thing noticed is that the MP went missing on January 8, 1975 and the UID was found on December 3, 1974. This surely
is not going to be a match as the UID was found long before the MP went missing. Be sure to pay attention to details. In some cases, had the UID been found on Dec. 27,1974...it is possible the reported date was an "approximate" and should be pursued as to how accurate was the missing? Usually in the circumstances and online research it can be determined as to the date accuracy.
If Mary was one who came and went, perhaps didn't hold a job and moved from place to place...the date could be somewhat off. If the circumstances of her disappearance is reported
that she went missing on her way home from work, it is a pretty good bet the date reported is actual.
The other HUGE "mistake" commonly made is that one will provide an MP and ask for it to be compared to a UID and upon checking both records find that BOTH THE MP AND THE UID had completed DNA done. If that is the case, it is a near guarantee that it is NOT A MATCH because it would have flagged a match in CODIS, as such.
Generally, you can plus or minus an inch or two as sometimes reported height on a missing is close, but not exact...and a UID is a close estimate.
EXAMPLE:
Mary is missing and is 5'6", in actuality she is 5'5" but always reported a bit taller on her drivers license. Jane Doe located was estimated to be approx 5'6" - 5'8".
This would be a close estimation to pursue other statistics for a possible match. If the UID is estimated as 5'8" - 5'10" it is probably not a good candidate to match.
Be careful of eye color. If Mary has blue eyes, and the UID has brown eyes, it is not going to be a candidate for a match. Usually family reports the accurate eye color and NamUs will not report an eye color unless positive of color. Keep in mind, errors in submission is possible so we advise to check all missing persons sites to be sure the missing eye color is reported
the same on each. (State Police site, NamUs missing, Registered Orgs, etc.) If eye color varies...it is best to report the discrepancy to be sure to obtain the accurate eye color. For the most part, in the hundreds of comparisons that we've done from NamUS, only one time was an eye color incorrectly reported to them by law enforcement on the missing person.
Additionally, you will want to utilize NAMUS UNIDENTIFIED for a comprehensive list of those located by state as well as partial remains. This site is primarly for posters of UID's to help bring awareness. NamUs is a comprehensive site. Be warned, however, and note that often times images from morgue photos may exist on the site.

ID - Female UID located September 09, 2014


ME/C Case Number: 14-001198
Twin Falls County, Idaho
45 to 50 year old White Female
Located: Sept 9, 2014
TWIN FALLS, IDAHO -- The body of a woman who was found in the Snake River has still not been identified, and the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help.

"Someone out there is missing a daughter, a mother or a friend," said Lt. Daron Brown. "We want to be able to notify her family."

She may be older than deputies originally suspected, but no other identifiable information was found. There was no match for the woman's fingerprints, and she does not match any missing person report at this time.

The autopsy confirmed that the woman died from a fall with multiple points of trauma.

Divers from the Twin Falls County Search and Rescue team searched underwater near the Perrine Bridge in hopes of finding any evidence that could identify her. Nothing was found.

Her description is a white female, 5'5 to 5'6, 140-150 pounds, brown hair and hazel eyes. She is thought to be 45-50 years of age. She was wearing black clothing, men's tennis shoes size 11.5, and did not have any tattoos. Anyone with any information about this person is encouraged to call SIRCOMM at (208) 735-1911.
