The Michigan State Police are trying to help bring closure to families who have loved ones that are still missing.

This Friday, June 14, the police are hosting a free event at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing for the families of missing people.

From noon to 5 p.m. biological relatives of a missing person can submit a DNA sample through a non-invasive cheek swab. The DNA samples will be used to try and help identity the 314 cases of unidentified remains housed at medical examiners’ offices throughout Michigan.

While I understand how this can be helpful, I do have a number of questions as to what happens to the DNA samples and what else they can be used for.  Anyone have a copy of the privacy policy and consent form for the submission?
