Description

Every day, police across the country log the details of reported missing people, but sometimes the trail goes cold and the lost are forgotten except by their loved ones. Meanwhile, medical examiners and coroners aren't always equipped to identify the Jane and John Does that show up in their communities. Even as technology advances, there's often not enough information to identify the unknown dead. On Wednesday, Sept. 2, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting will launch a new investigation that takes a close look at the people who disappeared, those charged with identifying them, and the loved ones that never got closure. A new search application, designed by our data team, will provide additional resources for families of the missing to hopefully get resolution. More at revealnews.org.
