CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigations announced upcoming enhancements to its Missing Persons web page on Tuesday.
The page was launched two years ago to fulfill DCI’s statutory duty to “act as a central repository of information and operate a clearinghouse database on missing persons from Wyoming,” the release said.
The agency plans to launch the new site Oct. 2.
“DCI has taken the internal database required by statute and made the information publicly available, engaging all Wyoming citizens in the efforts to swiftly locate the missing,” the release said.
The enhanced web platform facilitates publicly sharing missing person records upon database entry, detailed views, filter capabilities and a missing person flyer page, DCI said.
As of September 2023, 86 people are reported missing in the State of Wyoming, DCI said.
Now, as information is entered into the DCI database, the public will immediately be able to view the missing person data. Additional information about the missing person will be available, including an algorithmic current age and days missing calculator. Users will now be able to filter data to find information more pertinent to their inquiry and the new web page will have a flyer view, allowing users to download and print a missing person bulletin.
