To this date, there is still no database for missing people and unidentified remains. There are also no statistics available on missing adults in Canada. A centralized repository and resource center should be available for searches by the general public, medical examiners, coroners, law enforcement officials, etc. to help with solving cases.
Update January 2013:
There is finally a centralized database of Canada’s Missing. The National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is Canada’s national centre that assists law enforcement, medical examiners and chief coroners with missing persons and unidentified remains investigations across the country. The NCMPUR incorporates the existing National Missing Children Operations (NMCO).
