The International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) and the Group on Missing Persons (GNO), which consists of domestic institutions responsible for issues of missing persons from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia, as part of the Berlin process, today in The Hague, will publicly launch the Database of active cases of persons missing as a result of armed conflicts on the territory of the former Yugoslavia.
Establishing a unique, interactive database of missing persons cases ensures that up-to-date records of missing persons who have not yet been found are available to the general public at all times.
The database also enables families of missing persons and other citizens to see and review existing records and to submit feedback to domestic institutions via the Internet, the ICMP announced.
The Database is managed by the Group for Missing Persons (GNO) and currently contains a total of 10,814 entries.
That number will change as new cases are reported, that is, as cases are resolved.
The database offers the possibility of searching by name, father’s name, surname and the reported area of disappearance.
By clicking on a specific search result, several categories of data will be open for viewing.
Representatives of the ICMP, domestic institutions from the region and the governments of the United Kingdom and Germany, as key donors in the work on the issue of missing persons in the Western Balkans, will address the media today in The Hague after the presentation of the Regional Database.
