The Minnesota B-C-A is encouraging families of missing people to come forward and provide DNA samples for comparison with unidentified remains. The BCA’s Drew Evans says “the disappearance of a family member is extremely difficult because the loss is accompanied by so many unanswered questions. While a match like this is not the one families may hope for, information may help them move forward.” There will be DNA collection opportunities throughout the state for families of missing people over the next two weeks–including in St. Paul, Duluth, Bemidji and Mankato. Evans says there are at least 100 sets of unidentified human remains that have been found in Minnesota–and it’s likely there are even more out there that officials are unaware of. And in Minnesota, there are more than 550 missing persons at any given time.
