(b) the tribal affiliation of each missing or murdered indigenous relative, to the extent that publishing tribal affiliation does not identify an individual person;
(c) geographic information regarding cases of missing or murdered indigenous relatives;
(d) the results of cases of missing or murdered indigenous relatives; for example, whether the person is found and whether a perpetrator has been arrested and charged in the case and the disposition of the charges; and

Missing or murdered individuals who are Indigenous are members of our communities, of which our law enforcement officers are closely connected. The pictures of individuals are provided by family members to help the public share and submit tips and information that can help law enforcement give closure to families.
OMMIR and CBI appreciate your interest and willingness to be part of the solution to end the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous people. Due to the sensitive nature of working with law enforcement and associated legal cases, we are unable to accept volunteers, including college students conducting research. You may find volunteer or research opportunities by reaching out to non-profit organizations working to address the crisis
*All cold cases, missing persons, and unresolved homicides have been vetted with law enforcement and are currently in or are in the process of being added to the criminal justice system.
