Your public record request has been submitted to the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Custodian of Records for processing.  In compliance with Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes, this message serves as the department’s initial response within three business days. Public access and/or copies of the records you requested are not immediately available. The explanation of the cause for delay is that additional time is needed to research, and/or duplicate any records that are responsive to your request and are open pursuant to Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. Furthermore, in the event any information in the records is exempt from disclosure, additional time will be required to redact the information exempt from disclosure prior to providing public access and/or copies. For these reasons, the department anticipates a further response will be provided to you within twenty to thirty business days. You will also be notified if there are any fees associated with producing such reports.

Sincerely,
Capt. Paul Kennedy

We at the Custodian of Records Office have reviewed your request and wish to inform you that the information you are requesting is of public knowledge. You can find this information by visiting https://www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/CJ51/searchMissing.jsp . We only retain data for five years and in that time, there have been 69 reported cases of Indian/Alaskan Native missing persons. There are currently three active cases on this website that are available for you to view. The juvenile is listed twice which is why the website incorrectly states four rather than three. All other recorded information is protected pursuant 610.021 (14).

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 573-526-6146.

Sincerely,
PAUL E. KENNEDY, Captain
Custodian of Records
