Mr. Amarel:

I am contacting you in reference to a communication we received from you dated June 10, 2018. This letter was entered into our system with the administrative tracking number DOJ-2018-006444. However, upon further review it appears your communication was, in fact, seeking a status update on a prior request of yours that was assigned the administrative tracking number DOJ-2017-006558. In regards to request DOJ-2017-006558, we have initiated a search for the requested records but have not yet received responsive documents.

As your communication dated June 10, 2018 was inadvertently entered into our tracking system as a separate request, when in fact it is a duplicate of DOJ-2017-006558, we are closing DOJ-2018-006444. Going forward, please reference DOJ-2017-006558 for communications about your request.
Regards,

Samuel J. Dykstra
