The already-effective Cold Case Unit out of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office is hoping to continue their success as they now expand their scope to include all missing persons in the last 50 years.
Bristol County (Massachusetts) District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III made the announcement late last week.
“Although DAs don’t normally get involved in missing persons cases, Quinn saw a deficiency in the fact that there is no statewide or countywide missing persons database,” an office representative said in a statement. “He decided to use [the] Cold Case Unit to solve that deficiency.”
Currently, the Missing Persons project has 19 people listed on its website, the youngest being 15 years old at the time of his disappearance in February 2016.
