Missing Persons Bureau launches new website, some users report error

The UK Missing Persons Bureau has launched a new website to identify missing people; however, on Tuesday some users encountered problems.

Empowering families to play an active part in the search for their loved ones

The UK Missing Persons Bureau has launched a new website to identify missing people – both dead and alive – where it will upload details from case files, some from as long ago as the 1950s, and photographs of unidentified bodies or personal items and ask the public to provide any information it has via online reporting. The bureau currently has records of about 1,000 individuals, some of whom cannot identify themselves due to medical reasons.

According to Joe Apps, bureau manager: “This will be the first time families of missing people have been able to search through records for themselves and it will empower families to play an active part in the search for their loved onesadding that the aim of the site was to “bring closure” to families and friends.

However, on Tuesday, some users reported problems with the website and were being shown this message: “A serious error has occured. The system administrator has been notified.”
