Search Unidentified Remains, Missing Persons, and Unclaimed Remains
Given the sensitive nature of the information presented within this site, every effort has been made to present it in a way that is not offensive or uncomfortable for the viewer.
In an ongoing effort to locate families for unclaimed individuals, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office enters unclaimed individuals into a National database. Please click on Unclaimed Persons Database to search the database.
The UnClaimed Persons database contains information about deceased persons who have been identified by name, but for whom no next of kin or family member has been identified or located to claim the body for burial or other disposition.
Only medical examiners and coroners may enter cases in this database. The database is searchable by the public using a missing person’s name and year of birth.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office is seeking assistance in identifying the unidentified remains listed below. It is our hope that the use of the Internet will greatly expand our reach and assist in finding relatives or friends of these persons. If you have any information regarding any of the unidentified individuals listed here please contact our office at 425-438-6200 or by email. NOTICE: All emails, and attachments, sent to and from Snohomish County are public records and may be subject to disclosure pursuant to the Public Records Act (RCW 42.56).
Call 911 to report someone missing. If you have reported someone missing over 5 years ago and they are still missing, call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office (425) 388-3393 (then press “0”) with the person’s full name and date of birth to check that they are still entered as a missing person; older cases may have been inadvertently removed from the database. If you check with the Sheriff's Office and they tell you that the person you are missing is not in the system, ask that they take a new missing person report.
