The Kentucky State Medical Examiner is one reason anyone can now find information on missing or unidentified people in Kentucky and the U.S.
Dr. Emily Craig is in charge of Identifying bodies and helping police locate missing people.
She says before this new website getting information on Kentucky cases was difficult, getting info from around the country nearly impossible.
Now namus.gov is closing the gap by linking anyone with web access to information that would otherwise be unavailable.
Dr. Craig says there are pictures of clothing, tattoos and dental records available as identifiers so if you do have questions or answers it's all available online.
Dr. Craig says The nationwide site has been up and running for only a few weeks but already 5 cases have been solved including a missing woman who was found alive in Las Vegas.
Dr. Craig says having the ability to share information like this has been a long time coming.
