The Michigan State Police at the Marshall Post in a partnership with the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System are hosting an event to help resolve missing persons cases. Family members of missing persons are invited to attend a free event to submit DNA samples to help with the identification of unidentified remains housed at medical examiner’s offices throughout Michigan. Currently, there are 314 known unsolved unidentified remains cases statewide.

If you have a missing loved one, you are asked to bring at least two biological family members and any identifying medical documents to the event. Potential donors must be biological relatives and will be asked to allow a non-invasive swab of the inside of the cheek.

Family members are also encouraged to bring photographs as well as dental and medical records, or other identifying information to update law enforcement databases. Personal items will be immediately returned.
