There are hundreds of thousand missing persons in the FBI’s database. For many people, the methods of finding their lost loved ones are as mysterious as their disappearances. On today’s Fordham Conversations we hear from Privacy and Information Consultant Bob Gellman. He discusses some of the legal and ethical challenges in searching for missing people. Gellman is a Senior Fellow, Center on Law and Information Policy, Fordham University School of Law 2012-13. WFUV’s Rob Palazzolo also talks to Dr. Arnita Fowler. Her son went missing almost 20 years ago, and due to a lack of resources for locating missing adults and a bureaucratic mess, she didn’t recover his body from Hart Island for 4 years. Fowler has been trying to reform the system for locating missing persons in the New York.
