April 16-18, 2024 | Las Vegas, NV
Join us at this national conference, which focuses on identifying innovative and effective technologies, approaches and strategies in the search, investigation, identification, recovery, and reunification of missing persons, regardless of the circumstances surrounding their disappearance. You will gain knowledge and proficiency in evidence-based, state-of-the-art, and collaborative solutions, and explore tools and techniques from the initial response through recovery and resolution, vital to the missing and their families. The conference will also examine the complex and multifaceted nature of missing person cases and the unique needs of diverse, vulnerable, and at-risk population groups such as aging individuals, LGBTQ, persons with differing abilities, indigenous/native populations, victims of trafficking, veterans and active military, transient populations, and others.
