Australia’s law enforcement information-sharing agency CrimTrac will soon switch on a new system that will for the first time allow police to compare human remains to long-time missing persons cases across state and territory borders.
The federal government hopes the shared database will finally bring closure to the loved ones of an estimated 1600 long-term missing persons in Australia, who have been unaccounted for longer than six months.
The system will run DNA and other forensic characteristics of the missing individuals against more than 500 unidentified sets of human remains collected and recorded since the 1960s. The data is in the process of being digitized and entered into the system.
