Tonight I discovered the NamUS Missing Persons System site. It has over a thousand cases, but as I took a closer look I was very unimpressed. I did not, admittedly, look at every casefile. But from what I did see, NamUS doesn’t offer any cases or information that can’t be found elsewhere. Disturbingly, though the site is apparently funded by a federal grant and claims to verify everything they post, I saw several people listed as missing who were found months or years ago — in some cases before the NamUS website was made! Is that the best they can do? I don’t think I’ll be using NamUS in the future.
