FBI Assistance in Missing Persons Cases
In a missing person case, as a matter of cooperation, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will, at the request of a state or local law
enforcement agency, make available the facilities of the FBI Identification
Division and the FBI Laboratory.|
Information pertaining to certain categories of missing persons,
including missing children, may be entered into the missing person file of
FBI operated National Crime Information Center (NCIC) by the local law
enforcement agencies and, since passage of the Missing Children Act (Pub. L.
97-272, amending, 28 U.S.C. § 534), by parents of missing children if
local law enforcement agency will not do so.
