About The Project:
The information will be updated weekly and is being collected from two websites: NamUS and the California Department of Justice’s Missing Children Clearinghouse.
NamUs is the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. It is funded through a grant from the National Institute of Justice, Office of Justice Programs and U.S. Department of Justice. The California DOJ’s Missing Children Clearinghouse is a subset of all people reported as missing by law enforcement in California.
The California DOJ encourages anyone with information about any of the cases above to contact the law enforcement agency listed or the DOJ by using the toll-free hotline: 1-800-222-FIND (1-800-222-3463). You can also send them an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
