FBI Releases Second Update With Statistics In Latest List Of Native Americans Missing In New Mexico And Navajo Nation – Los Alamos Daily Post

FBI News:
The FBI Tuesday, Sept. 20 released the second update of its list of Native Americans verified as missing in New Mexico and the Navajo Nation. 
There are a total of 183 missing Indigenous persons on the latest list: 21 individuals have been added and 24 removed since last month’s list of 186 names was released.   
When the list was first released in July, there were 177 names on it.  
The list and updates can be found at fbi.gov/mmip.   
The updated list, current as of September 13, has 115 males and 68 females. The following statistics are provided: 
If someone’s relative is included in the names, the FBI is actively checking numerous law enforcement databases and other sources nationwide to identify leads that will be quickly passed along to the appropriate agency. 
If an Indigenous family member who is missing is not included in this list, the relatives are urged to contact their local or tribal law enforcement agency and ask them to submit a missing person report to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).  
For further assistance with their request, family members or law enforcement can contact the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office or the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI. 
Partners involved in the project include the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Justice Services, New Mexico’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives (MMIWR) Task Force, New Mexico Attorney General’s Office, New Mexico Department of Public Safety, New Mexico Department of Indian Affairs, Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office, and the City of Albuquerque Office of Equity and Inclusion. 
The FBI also received information and support from the Navajo Nation, Native American pueblos and local law enforcement.
