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.

Unclaimed Remains

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.
