In April of 2014 the Greenbelt Police Department contacted the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center (MCAC) in reference to a critical missing person investigation. As a result of a query of the MCAC's LPR database, they were able to provide investigators with a location of the missing person's vehicle, which had been scanned before being reported as missing. Based on the location information, detectives were able to locate the vehicle. Sadly, the missing person was found deceased inside the vehicle and a homicide investigation resulted.
