The Doe Network is a 100% volunteer organization devoted to assisting investigating agencies in bringing closure to national and international cold cases concerning Missing & Unidentified Persons. Their mission is to give the nameless back their names and return the missing to their families. This is accomplished in three ways:

  1. by providing exposure to these cases on their website,
  2. by providing credible potential matches between missing and unidentified persons to investigating agencies, and
  3. by striving to get much-needed and deserved media exposure to these cases.
