Enter Missing Person's Last Name and hit ENTER.
When a person first goes missing, are an adult, are not elderly, endangered or a child, the Police will not assign a very high priority to the case.
However, the state of MONTANA has enacted the following (exerpt from here)
Any person who reports a missing person to a police department, sheriff's office, or other law enforcement authority must be given a form, supplied by the department of justice, that authorizes the release of the dental records of the missing person.
The form must state that if the person is still missing 30 days after the report was made, the form may be signed by a relative of the missing person and taken to the dentist of the missing person, who shall release the dental records or copies of the records to the relative.
The records must be submitted by the relative within the next 10 days to the law enforcement authority to which the missing person report was made.
If and When Dental Charts are submitted to NCIC (FBI) by the investigating officer, a list of possible matching dental records are returned to the officer.
These returns are based on EXACT MATCHES of dental treatment for each tooth.
I have examined many ante mortem and post mortem dental charts from the Battle of Tarawa (1943) and can attest to the fact that rarely are there exact matches.
Subsequent treatment, missing post mortem teeth are almost always found in Unidentified Found Person remains, so this approach of exact matches is naive.
From my long experience in investigatimg Missing Person Cases I know that Dental Charts are mostly thought of as comparison items, only to be used where a Found Person's records are compared to the Missing person thought to be that person.
The intent of this program is to search all qualifying dental charts, and return all possible matches even though they may contain reasonable changes (subsequent treatment) and several charting errors.
In Missing Person Cold cases, it may not be reasonable to expect investigating agencies to re-enter dental charts as they already may have submitted them to NCIC and NAMUS.
Loved ones of Missing Persons can now enter their Dental Charts, hoping they may get a match, knowing they have 'left no stone unturned' in their search for their loved ones.
