FMPD to Host Missing Person’s Day

The Fort Myers Police Department, in association with other Law enforcement and missing person’s organizations, will be presenting Lee County Missing Person’s day on Saturday, July 27th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fort Myers High School. 

The event is designed to offer a connection for families or friends who have been impacted by the disappearance of a loved one to organizations that can offer help regarding a missing person. Participants are encouraged to bring their photo ID, photos and identifying features of the missing person, x-rays, dental records, police reports or other documents. Relatives will also have an opportunity to submit DNA samples. Agencies will also be on hand to take reports of never reported missing persons. In addition, members of the FMPD Crime Scene Unit will offer free child fingerprinting for parents to keep on file.

Agencies in attendance will include the Lee County Sherriff’s Department, Cape Coral Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the State Attorney’s Office Florida Department of Children and Families, SWFL Crimestoppers, District 21 Medical Examiner’s Office, Peace River Search and Rescue and NAMUS (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System.)  The services are free and open to the public.
