The Attorney General’s office also works with families of the missing, law enforcement, social service agencies and clearinghouses in other states.

Never Forgotten Database
NeverForgotten.ar.gov, launched in 2016 and hosted by Arkansas Crime Information Center, enables the public to access information on missing persons cases with an easy-to-use searchable database. Before this website was created, the public had limited access to information on missing persons.
NeverForgotten.ar.gov includes all missing persons from Arkansas and will be updated regularly. Arkansans who have missing loved ones should share as much information as possible, especially the most recent available photographs with their local law enforcement agency. Local agencies will provide updated information to ACIC to be included on the website.
NeverForgotten.ar.gov is also made possible by the Arkansas Association of Chiefs of Police, Arkansas Sheriffs’ Association, Arkansas State Crime Lab, Arkansas State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation – Little Rock Division, Morgan Nick Foundation and the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System.
Free Child ID kits are availabe to Arkansas families to keep a record of physical, medical and dental information. The kit includes a fingerprint strip and place for fingerprints, as well as a photograph.
Order Child ID Kits on the online form.
