The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has a website the anyone can use that contains information about, and when available, pictures of Michigan Children who have been reported to law enforcement as runaways or potential abductions. This information is being provided by the State because it is believed the children are at risk, and it is in the best interest of these children that they be located.

The Michigan.Gov/Michigan State Police also have an excellent website. It addresses access to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) website.

The information on the NAMUS site is updated daily. Law enforcement agencies and medical examiner's offices from across the country share this information with the hopes a missing person can be reunited with his/her family or unidentified remains can be sent home and given a proper burial.

It's a heartbreaking situation, but in the case of Thomas, we hope and pray that he is safe and is able to return home, or a safe and secure secure situation can be found for him.
