Biometrica, Native Search Solutions and NAFFA are dedicated to combining law enforcement investigative experience, private sector software, data, systems and training tools, and nonprofit experience in family, grief, and trauma counseling, along with experience working with tribal nations, to help find American Indian and Alaska Native persons that have gone missing, and try and bring closure to families whose loved ones have been tragically murdered before their time.

  • Find Persons of Interest, Monitor Cold Cases

    We provide tribal law enforcement, or analysts from select child protection agencies and public safety-focused tribal government organizations, with the resources to help track known or unknown persons of interest last seen with a missing child or adult member of a sovereign nation, or the person last seen in the vicinity of a victim of homicide, in order to gain pointer data or investigative leads. We could also help tribal law enforcement identify unknown victims of homicide or other events on tribal land.



    How would this work? If you are a tribal law enforcement agency, please email us at leo@biometrica.com. As a direct user of Biometrica’s software and systems, you can be trained in the use of our continuous monitoring tool, eMotive-EI. This will allow you to build your own encrypted dataset/s of MMIP case persons of interest or cold case files you need to monitor (this is done through 24x7 automated algorithmic monitoring), while maintaining digital chain of custody and audit trails. We are HIPAA and FCRA compliant. Alternatively, an organization or MMIP family can use the information on the right to contact the Center’s lead investigator, Native Search’s Mark Pooley (Navajo & Hopi). The NSS team makes the final determination on whether a case can be accepted into our system.

  • Contact Us About a Missing Person

    If you would like to enroll a missing person in our search software please contact Mark Pooley, founder of Native Search Solutions, at https://www.nativesearchsolutions.org/contact.


    We cannot guarantee that every inquiry will be accepted.


    If you do not have reliable access to the internet you can write a letter to:


    MMIP Fusion Center

    525 W. Southern Ave #128

    Mesa, AZ 85210


    Please understand that we cannot accept every case. That decision will be made by our lead investigator. Filling out a consent form does not ensure that your case will be accepted, however we cannot accept cases without a signed consent form. The consent form will contain PII/SPI data, please do not submit it unless asked to. Native Search Solutions will provide details as to how and when to submit a consent form, after a case has been accepted for submission by the NSS team. Please only send these forms securely, not through regular email, because they contain PII (Personally Identifiable Information).

  • Trauma Counseling & Family Support Services

    We believe support doesn’t exist in a silo. Families that lose a loved one to traumatic events, either because they go missing or because they are victims of homicide, do not generally need just investigative, technological, and analytical help, they also need access to emotional support and grief or trauma counseling. Unfortunately, these resources are often scarce in Indian country. We can help provide access to these resources through our partners at NAFFA.



    How would you get help? For 20 years, NAFFA, the Native American Fatherhood & Families Association, has focused on the need to address family violence and domestic abuse among its programs. Originally begun as a foundational program designed specifically to work with Native American fathers, it expanded its services to include women and then people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. Over the past two decades, NAFFA has trained over 1,500 facilitators and worked with over 20,000 individuals, primarily through the Native American community.  With the exponential rise in MMIP cases, they are also making trauma counseling, grief counseling, behavioral counseling, coping strategies, and psychological and individual and family support services available for MMIP families that would like to access support and resources through the Center. Please reach out directly to NAFFA at

  • Track the Missing, Locate Survivors

    We could help find possible victims of trafficking, runaways, or those lured away, by running them 24x7, through continuous monitoring, against our UMbRA database to see if they have had a run in with law enforcement for any reason, in real-time. While this may not seem ideal, it does help families to know where a loved one is and see how they can get them the help they need.



    How would we do this? Please contact us. If you’re next of kin, please look at the link to the digital consent form up and to the right under the Contact Us column; it has details needed in order for us to set up an automated search for your missing loved one. Please DO NOT fill in that consent form or provide any details till your case has been accepted by our partners at Native Search Solutions. Once you have been walked through a series of investigative questions and background details, and your consent is obtained through the form, one of our analysts will put the images and details you provide into an encrypted dataset. That information will then run on a 24x7 basis against UMbRA. We will receive an encrypted alert in case of a possible match, which will then be investigated. Please note, in case of an adult survivor being located, their consent would have to be obtained prior to their details being shared.

  • The Center's Lead Investigator

    The MMIP Fusion Center’s investigative lead is Sgt. Mark Pooley (Retd). Mark is a former law enforcement officer who spent 15 years with the Tempe Police Department and three with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Mark worked a variety of cases as a detective, including home invasions, violent crimes, street jumps, homicides and missing persons, before moving on to the FBI’s JTTF in the aftermath of 9/11, with the FBI in Phoenix. He moved back to the TPD and became a sergeant in the professional standards bureau, before retiring after a debilitating cancer diagnosis. Post a hard-fought, successful battle, Mark, who is both Navajo and Hopi, decided to turn to private practice and focus his skills on where he thought they were most needed — MMIP cases.

  • Community Response & Partnerships

    We may be a tech & data company, but we firmly believe we are part of a much-larger community of people that care deeply about protecting the most at-risk and resource-scarce groups amongst us. We work with child protection organizations, including NCMEC, and other groups focused on tracking human and sex-traffickers, sex-offenders, and people that facilitate hosting CSAM on the dark web.



    Reach out, we're listening: We help provide resources to underserved communities looking for affordable, real-time solutions to community-specific public safety issues. We will partner with the National Criminal Justice Training Center to build a course to train law enforcement groups in how and when to use facial recognition and big data, the importance of pairing HUMINT and algorithmic intelligence, and recognizing human bias in using tech and eliminating it. Ask us about it at leo@biometrica.com. Additionally, reach out to our partners at Native Search Solutions, who can help you create and implement customized training plans, depending on a tribe's public safety needs. This includes building Community Response Plans for when a person goes missing.

Reach out, we're listening!

If you are a tribal law enforcement agency in need of software tools or access to real-time criminal data, a tribal community in search of public safety tools, an NGO working with MMIP cases or tribal investigator wanting information on resources, or a potential partner or donor, feel free to contact us.
