Missing Persons Initiative

The Attorney General’s Office, in partnership with other law enforcement agencies, will host its fourth annual observance dedicated to locating Arkansas’s missing children and adults on June 10th at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock.

The “Never Forgotten—Arkansas Takes Action” event was established to raise awareness of issues surrounding missing persons and to honor Arkansas’s missing.  
 

Law Enforcement CLEST/CLE Training

The morning will be devoted to providing training to our state's law enforcement community. From 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Kevin Mulcahy, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of Michigan, will give a presentation about his personal experience as a survivor of childhood sexual exploitation. He will talk about how he uses that experience in investigating and prosecuting child predators.

The presentation will provide plenty of time for questions from attendees. 

CLE/CLEST credit of 3 hours has been applied for.

Law Enforcement and Attorneys may register HERE.

 

Luncheon

The Attorney General will host a luncheon and awards ceremony to recognize families of missing children and adults. The luncheon  is a opportunity for families who are still searching and for families who have lost loved ones to come together to support each other. RSVP for the luncheon HERE.

From 2:30 to 7 p.m., families of the missing will have an opportunity to speak directly with local, state and federal law enforcement agents involved in missing persons cases. Event attendees may submit DNA samples to help resolve long-term missing persons cases.

Representatives from the Arkansas State Crime Lab, Arkansas Crime Information Center, Arkansas State Police, NamUs (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System) and various law enforcement agencies will be available to collect DNA samples and other vital information such as photos, x-rays and dental records in an effort to update their databases.  Law enforcement agencies will also be encouraged to bring cases so they can be entered into NamUs.
