Age-progression photos are widely used by investigators to help locate missing persons and hunt wanted fugitives.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children pioneered the use of age progression photos to reunite long-term missing children with their families. The success they’ve experienced crossed over into law enforcement. Today, many law enforcement organizations like the United States Marshals Service use age progression photos to track and arrest our nation’s most violent criminals.
Civil attorneys also use age-progression photos during wrongful death lawsuits to show how their clients might have appeared if they lived a full-life.
Private individuals often request age-progressions of missing & deceased family members to provide them hope and comfort.
