Canada’s Missing is the first national website designed to engage the public in reporting tips and information related to ongoing cases.
The National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) is Canada’s national centre that provides law enforcement, medical examiners and chief coroners with specialized investigative services in support of missing persons and unidentified remains investigations.
As part of its operations, the NCMPUR manages:
- The development and implementation of the national Missing Children/Persons and Unidentified Remains (MC/PUR) Database, which includes data on missing persons and unidentified remains investigations from across the country.
- The provision of investigational advice and case analysis to law enforcement partners.
- The national public website to provide information on selected cases to the public for the purposes of seeking tips on investigations.
- The provision of enhanced specialized services to investigators of primary jurisdiction such as Computer Age Progression, Amber Alert, the Travel Reunification Program, and Facial Approximation.
The NCMPUR includes National Missing Children Operations (formerly known as National Missing Children Services) and National Missing Person and Unidentified Remains Operations.
The NCMPUR resides within the RCMP’s Canadian Police Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (CPCMEC).
