Make it mandatory for police to add all missing persons to the RCMP national website


The police have said it time and again about cold cases --- it will take a tip from the public to solve those cases.  

Despite that in Canada it is not mandatory for the police to add the profile of a missing person into the RCMP’s national public missing persons database.

How can the public help find a missing person if they don’t even know that that person exists, much less is missing? The public should be able to see the physical description and photo of anyone reported missing in Canada. That’s why Canada's missing was created.

Currently it is up to the whim of the individual police agency on whether a profile is added. My daughter has been missing for almost eight years and yet the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) doesn’t think it is necessary to add her profile to the (NCMPUR) National Center for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains website. 

We need to take this choice out of the police’s hands and make it mandatory ---  that after a person has been missing for a week, their profile must be added to the National Center for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains website. (NCMPUR)  

Please help me get this law passed.

For more information about my daughter’s case, please go to my dauthger's site

search (Candace Missing) and hear my appeal on the fifth estate website.
