What all law officials should know…
Please go to the website provided below and request the packets (they must request from an approved CODIS lab or department) they will mail them to the law officer that the family of the missing loved one lives in/near to take the samples. Then law officials will be given a date of entry from CODIS. Once the missing person’s DNA is in CODIS it will be compared with all current entries and then any human remains found in the future. All missing persons should be submitted into CODIS; this is now becoming a common part of data for cases of the missing as follows:
