To Whom it May Concern:

This is in response to your FOIL request concerning copies of case records (open and closed) of missing American Indians/ Alaska Native persons within Ontario County 2000-2020. The information should include: name, age, DOB, incident date, closure date, county in which reported missing.

The Sheriff's reports(both paper or electronic) are not filed according to race; only by incident number and date; therefore each individual incident report for the last 20 years would have to be pulled and reviewed. We do not have the staff or time in order to complete this request.

We ask to please narrow and revise your request.
