Never Forgotten Database

NeverForgotten.ar.gov, launched in July 2016 and hosted by Arkansas Crime Information Center, enables the public to access information on missing persons cases with an easy-to-use searchable database.

NeverForgotten.ar.gov news conferenceArkansas has more than 500 unsolved missing persons cases, with those missing ranging from ages 2 to 99. Before this website was created, the public had limited access to information on missing persons.

NeverForgotten.ar.gov includes all missing persons from Arkansas and will be updated regularly. Arkansans who have missing loved ones should share as much information as possible, especially the most recent available photographs with their local law enforcement agency. Local agencies will provide updated information to ACIC to be included on the website.
