8th Annual National Training Conference on
Responding to Missing & Unidentified Persons
March 25-27, 2014 | Appleton, Wisconsin
Thousands of children and adults vanish under suspicious circumstances each year. In the United States there as many as 100,000 active missing person cases on any given day. Viewed over a 20-year period, the number of missing persons, both adults and children, can be estimated in the hundreds of thousands. Many of the persons reported missing are lured or coerced into human trafficking for labor or commercial sexual exploitation. It is extremely important to improve access to critical information and bridge gaps in resources between law enforcement agencies, forensic professionals; national, state, and local service providers, and families of the missing. This national conference addresses the critical training needs of those who work to solve these cases, and provides a unique opportunity to build multi-disciplinary approaches to investigating missing person and solving unidentified remains cases. Attend this training to learn about the latest available information systems and technology, investigative practices, and ways to develop effective inter-agency collaboration and protocol.
