Families and Friends affected by the mysterious disappearance of a loved on and the communities

What Will the Day Include
The event will be a campaign to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons in
the State of Michigan. Families and Friends affected by the unexplained disappearance of loved ones will
be recognized on this day. Law Enforcement agencies and the community organizations that assist with these
cases will be showcased at the event. This event will give law enforcement a chance to update their databases
with new technologies such as DNA (family reference samples) and online profiles of the missing people.
(www.namus.gov). Officers will be
taking tips on old cases and conducting interviews on any new cases that may be reported at the event.
Community organizations will be assisting with stimulating speakers, promoting child safety, and handing
out free child ID kits. The event will conclude with a candlelight vigil ceremony to commemorate the missing
members of our community.

Families of missing persons are encouraged to bring photographs, dental records, radiographs (X-rays) to
update our digital databases. These will be scanned on-site and immediately returned. Families and Friends
should feel free to wear memorial t-shirts, bring posters and any literature to display and commemorate the missing
loved one. We ask that you wear yellow to show your support for the cause.
