Missing in Arizona is an interagency effort involving law enforcement, forensic scientists, Latin American consulates, and missing person advocacy groups to find foreign nationals who are believed to have entered the U.S. and disappeared. The Missing in Arizona experts assist relatives and loved ones searching for answers without regard to the citizenship status of the persons involved.
Identification requires fundamental detective work, use of forensic sciences including DNA matching and creating composite drawings, and developing and updating databases of missing persons. The assistance of the consulates is as important as the use of hard sciences and investigatory techniques.
