If you want happiness for an hour,
...take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day,
...go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year,
...inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, someone else.
—Ancient Chinese proverb






The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) was created to meet the challenges involved in investigating and solving missing person and unidentified cases. NamUs brings together two online searchable databases: records on unidentified human remains and information on missing persons.
