Share post:

Chicago, IL – In a heartfelt community outreach, Cook County’s Medical Examiner’s Office has announced the hosting of its fourth annual Missing Persons Day.

Aimed at bridging the gap between hope and loss, this event is a cornerstone for families seeking to reconnect with loved ones who have vanished. Scheduled for April 20th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., this day is set to provide a platform for the submission of DNA samples and critical identification documents directly into the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).

The initiative extends beyond mere procedural aid; it’s a day imbued with solidarity, offering counseling services and fostering connections among families united by similar plights. The county emphasizes that attendance by two biologically related family members will enable the submission of cheek swab DNA samples, potentially unlocking new leads in longstanding cases.

This compassionate event reaffirms Cook County’s commitment to addressing the profound issue of missing persons with a blend of scientific rigor and human sensitivity, ensuring every possible measure is taken to bring closure to waiting families.
