Unidentified persons

The National Missing Persons Helpline has launched an unidentified persons database of faces and descriptions:

A person who is unidentified, whether alive or deceased, is often also a missing person. Until the name of that person has been established, their family and friends will not know what has happened to them. In the case of a murder where the victim's identity is unknown, it is very hard for the enquiry to move forward until the victim has a name.

They also introduce some of their identification and reconstruction services - age progression, image enhancement and facial reconstruction.
