Victims’ Families Find Help with Missing and Unidentified Persons Database


Phoenix, AZ, (May 29, 2011) — Families with missing loved ones have had few places to turn in their search into answers, until now. The Arizona Missing Database (AMD) in partnership with the International Community Identification Network (INCIDENT) established a national long term record of missing and unidentified persons. Utilizing forensic and coroner’s information on missing persons and unidentified remains, the resource is designed to give families, law enforcement, medical examiners, and the public the ability to become actively involved in unresolved cases.


“INCIDENT is the first step is finding what happened to my son,” said Daniel Adams, father of missing Mitch Adams. “It gives law enforcement, coroners, medical examiners a common source share information about our case.” The system allows local and national officials to cross-match records between the missing person's database and the unidentified decedent database starting in June 2010.
