BCA Announces DNA Collection Opportunities for Families of Missing Persons

cathy swab - Copy.PNGAs part of its effort to learn the identities of approximately 100 sets of unidentified human remains known to exist in Minnesota, the BCA announced a series of DNA collection opportunities for family members of missing persons. They'll take place over the next few weeks in St. Paul, Duluth, Bemidji and Mankato.

Family members would bring information about their missing relative (name, DOB, dental records, information about their disappearance, and any available items which may contain the missing person's DNA like baby teeth, toothbrushes, etc.). DNA from a cheek swab taken from the family member will be compared for a possible match with DNA profiles from unidentified remains.

Learn more about collection dates and this ongoing effort.
