A day dedicated for missing persons in Michigan will take place Saturday, May 5 in Livonia.

"Missing in Michigan Day" will team up several law enforcement agencies and other organizations to help resolve missing person cases.

The goal behind the family-friendly event is to provide support to families of missing persons and help law enforcement officials update their missing person databases with tips and new information in an attempt to resolve more missing person cases.

Families will get the chance to meet with the Michigan State Police (MSP), the Detroit Police Department, Livonia Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to provide them with details about their loved ones in hopes of leading police and search groups closer to finding and bringing them back home.

A special VIP program will also be the focus of the event. This is said to really make a difference in the prevention of other Michigan residents from becoming a missing persons case added to the database.

Families of missing persons should bring at least two biological relatives of the missing loved one.

Family members of missing people should pre-register to ensure their loved one is commemorated.

To register, contact Contact D/Sgt. Sarah Krebs at 313-215-0675 or krebss@michigan.gov.

Tune into FOX 47 at 10 PM to learn more about this event.
