The Names That Matter

Welcome to TNTM!

Our goal is to compare and compile all state and national databases of missing persons and unidentified remains to create a single reference record for each Utah case. We’ll keep you updated in our blog with information discrepancies and our efforts to contact these databases and resolve conflicting cases.

Our databases of unidentified remains and missing persons are now live! Below is a list of the main resources we use to find case information. See our Resources tab for the full list.

While trying to research these cases before it was confusing and frustrating to see case information vary from database to database with incorrect dates and conflicting reports. Cases can also be in 1-7+ different databases with differing amounts of information. TNTM was created to make research on cases in Utah go a little quicker – for us and for you!

National Databases:

National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)

The Doe Network

The Charley Project

National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC)

Utah State Databases:

Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) Cold Cases

Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) Missing Persons

Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) Unidentified Persons
