WASHINGTON – An Aug. 16 Cronkite News story about missing and murdered Indigenous people misstated the number of states that require reports to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, and mischaracterized tribal police agencies’ access to the National Crime Information Center. Thirteen states, including Arizona, require police to file missing and unidentified persons reports with NamUs, while 123 tribes have direct access to NCIC.
