Good afternoon Ms. Nason:

Our FOIA office received your FOIA request dated February 9, 2018 and

In your request you asked for the following:

include whether they have been found, and if they were registered to NamUs,
the national missing persons database. Please limit my request to Jan. 1,
2000 to the date this request is processed."

We have classified you as a an "other-use" requester. As such, we
may charge you for some of our search and duplication costs, but we will
not charge you for our review costs; you are also entitled to up to 2 hours
of search time and 100 pages of photocopies (or an equivalent volume) for
free. See 43 C.F.R. § 2.39. If, after taking into consideration your
fee category
entitlements, our processing costs are less than $50.00, we will not bill
you because the cost of collection would be greater than the fee collected.
See 43 C.F.R. § 2.49(a)(1).
We use Multitrack Processing to process FOIA requests. The Simple track is
for requests that can be processed in one to five workdays. The
Normal track is for requests that can be processed in six to twenty
workdays. The Complex track is for requests that can be processed in
twenty-one to sixty workdays. The Exceptional/Voluminous track is
for requests requiring more than sixty workdays for processing. The
Expedited track is for requests that have been granted expedited
processing. Within each track, requests are usually processed on a
first-in, first-out basis.

This request falls into the *Exceptional/Voluminous* track.

Even though we normally process requests on a first-in, first-out basis,
because of the nature of your request and the circumstances surrounding
this request, we will prioritize and process your request as the records
become available.

If you have any questions, please contact us at BLM_WO_FOIA@blm.gov or
202-912-7650. Thank you for your interest in public lands and in programs
