Humanitarian and human rights law requiring that all possible measures are taken to ensure the fate is known of their missing loved ones and that their families are kept informed must be enacted immediately.

While searching for answers pertaining to Ashley’s disappearance, it was discovered that inadequate measures to provide vital DNA, dental records and additional pertinent information is not being submitted to the federal NamUs database.  Out of the Nine hundred plus missing children and adults in the State of Indiana only 169 of those cases or 1% have been submitted to the NamUs database.

As of today, there are 59 Unidentified Person cases in the NamUs database that are sitting in limbo in the state of Indiana dating back to 1975.
