I hate to sound like a broken record but there are over 7000 missing people in Canada and over 600 unidentified remains in coroners offices all across our Country. It is outrageous to think that there is no DNA data base of all the missing people. So many families are looking for answers as to why their loved ones disappeared off the face of the earth and where are they now?
There was a news release and it looks like we will be getting a Missing Persons DNA data base but not until 2013. However it sounds like they are planning on doing it the right way by including all missing persons, regardless of race, age, sex, or lifestyle. Here is a copy of the petition for a National DNA data for missing Canadians
