  1. I agree but is there any harm in having a database?

    There are multiple of databases for missing persons. They are done by law enforcement (local/state, federal, and international), not the Park Service.

    So actually the Park Service is kind of nice here.
    They would go to the different law enforcement agencies to compile a list for the author. Of course depending on the number of parks and states with these parks this will be quite some effort for something which isnt really their responsibiliry. At the very least they would need to hire an intern or two for a while plus some PC and phones and a number of smaller fees the distributed law enforcement agencies are asking for to share their data.
    Thus making this list would cost them an extra few thousand at least on top of their normal budget which is usually not enough anyways.
    Sounds fair that they want to pass on the cost.
    What is their asking price?

    $34,000 to get the list of missing from Yosemite, and $1,400,000 to get the list of missing from the entire system.

    From what I recall reading, that includes interviewing Park Service employees and ex-employees who were involved in the SAR situations from many years past. $34,000 seems like a fair price for all of the Yosemite cases.
    I would have told him to "pound sand."
