by Saudi Arabia

10 February 2009

LYON, France – An international security alert, known as an Orange Notice, has been issued by INTERPOL for 85 terrorists suspected of plotting attacks against Saudi Arabia from abroad.

INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters published the global alert at the request of INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau (NCB) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The 83 Saudis and two Yemenis are wanted at the national level by Saudi Arabia on terrorism-related charges, including links to al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia, as well as in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  4. Reaching Out to the Families of the Missing A missing person is indeed the greatest tragedy at the individual family level. It’s just hidden in the masses of others unaffected. http://www.associatedcontent.comarticle/1438836/reaching_out_to_the_families_of_the.html

    The Missing Persons Database contains information that can be entered by anyone. Before a missing persons case will appear on this Web site, however, it will be validated. The site also provides links to state clearinghouses, medical examiners and coroners, victim assistance groups and pertinent legislation. There’s over 100,000 known missing persons in the USA.

    The Unidentified Decedents Database contains information entered by medical examiners and coroners. Anyone can search the database using characteristics such as sex, race, distinct body features and dental information. There are up to 50,000 cases of unidentified remains in the USA.

    The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) is the first national repository for missing persons and unidentified decedent records. Unidentified decedents are people who have died and whose bodies have not been identified.

    NamUs consists of two databases that anyone can search. The Justice Department hopes that law enforcement officials and the public will use the databases to share information to solve cases.

    All users are on the same page, the same core data. But law enforcement users have a more intense level of access to information not available to the public. So the system can be used as an investigative and communication tool.

    We encourage law enforcement to register for access to the system as soon as possible.

    The NamUs Missing Persons database can be directly accessed via – or via

    What Is NMVTIS?
    Established by federal law in 1992, the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) system that is operated on behalf of DOJ by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).

    NMVTIS is an electronic system that enables users to access automobile titling information, including brand history and certain historical theft data. A “brand” is a descriptive label assigned to a vehicle by a state that identifies the vehicle’s current or prior condition, such as “junk,” “salvage,” or “flood.” By capturing into one system specific pieces of information from state motor vehicle titling agencies, automobile recyclers, junk and salvage yards, and insurance carriers, NMVTIS protects states and consumers from title fraud, keeps stolen vehicles from being retitled, and makes it more difficult for criminals to conceal stolen vehicles for criminal purposes.

    NMVTIS Search
    To conduct a NMVTIS search, select a provider (listed alphabetically). As additional providers are added, they will be listed here.

    Auto Data Direct, Inc.

    CARCO Group, Inc.

    Please note that when you select a provider listed above, you are leaving the U.S. Department of Justice web site.

    News Items

    * California, New York, Pennsylvania, currently provide data, but restrict NMVTIS from releasing data to consumers (see map above).
    * NMVTIS Final Rule published on Friday, January 30, 2009
    * U.S. Department of Justice Press Release
    * National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) Participation Program (FY 2009 Competitive Grant Announcement) (Applications are due February 12, 2009)

    NMVTIS is necessary and crucial to:

    * Protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles.
    * Aid law enforcement efforts to reduce crime, specifically crimes involving vehicles, including vehicle theft rings, violent crimes, drug crimes, financial crimes, smuggling, and fraud.
    * Allow state motor vehicle titling agencies to instantly and reliably verify a vehicle’s title before issuing a new title, and facilitating the electronic exchange of information between states, which improves titling efficiency and reduces fraud.

    NMVTIS is important because:

    * 1.3 million vehicles are stolen each year.
    * Auto fraud is a profitable business that burdens states and consumers.
    * Auto theft alone costs consumers and insurance companies nearly $8 billion per year.
    * Only 63 percent of vehicles reported stolen are recovered.
    * Approximately 570,000 vehicles were affected by the 2005 hurricanes. These vehicles have been targets for vehicle title fraud (“brand washing”).
    * Creation of false vehicle identification numbers (“VIN Cloning”) is a growing trend.
    * Brand washing occurs regularly. Experian Automotive reported that in the first six months of 2008 there were more than 185,000 titles that were initially branded in one state, and then transferred and re-titled in a second state in a way that resulted in a purportedly clean title.
    * A clear link has been demonstrated between auto theft and major crimes, violent crime, organized crime, and transnational criminal activity.

    Currently 27 states participate or contribute to NMVTIS (view a map of participating states), with 10 others currently working towards participation. All states are required to be fully participating on or before January 1, 2010.

    NMVTIS provides consumers and others with vehicle information such as:

    * Current and previous state of title.
    * Title issue date.
    * Most recent odometer reading.
    * Any brand(s) applied to the vehicle.
    * Date the brands were applied.
    * Any auto recycler or junk or salvage yard history for the vehicle.
    * Any insurance company salvage determination (including “total loss”) history for the vehicle.

    For specific information on what data is made available and the NMVTIS privacy policy, please go to the Privacy Policy.

    Where implemented, NMVTIS has already produced results, including time and cost savings, reductions in consumer wait time, decreases in motor vehicle thefts, improved recovery rate of stolen vehicles, increased ability to identify cloned vehicles before title issuance, and improved investigative abilities.

    Currently, there are approximately 300,000,000 VINs in NMVTIS and over 40,000,000 brands included.
