I don’t understand why a RCMP Data Base of all the Missing People of Canada has to be delayed until 2013. There is no reason that this cannot be worked on now. There are lots of people who would volunteer their time for this…I am one of them. I would hope that the RCMP Missing Persons Data Base would be available for the public to see as well. This could be a limited view with the RCMP having full access to all the information and the public having the details of the disappearance. The Data Base could be divided up into Provinces and Cities and all linked together under Canada. This would show any similarities and patterns of missing people. Any one who has a missing loved one knows how desperately this is needed. Currently there are over 2300 people missing just from BC and yet you would be hard pressed to find information about even half that amount. Each and every missing person deserves to be listed as missing. All it takes is one person to see the missing person story and have the piece of evidence to solve the disappearance.
Currently each city has a list of missing persons listed with either the RCMP or their City Police department. Some of the RCMP Websites don’t even have a list of Missing People from their area but they are listed on the Main RCMP site. The City Police departments have their own listings of Missing People from their area. For instance someone missing from New Westminster BC is listed on the New Westminster Police Web Site but not listed on the RCMP Missing persons Website, which is the one that most people would look at.
It seems like there are more and more people going missing each year so a Central Data Base for the Missing of Canada is very much-needed. 2013 is too long to wait, we need this to be complete this year…and Canada desperately needs a Missing Persons DNA Data Base. This should be done at the same time as a Missing Persons Data Base….
