See how the Central Identification Laboratory works to resolve the 90,000 MIA cases.
To date, 90,000 military personnel are classified as MIA. Central Identification Laboratory, or CILHI, is the central forensics division of the US Army that has been charged with finding these men. This group of investigators, archaeologists, radiologists, and forensics technicians is dedicated to searching for, recovering, and identifying the remains of American military personnel around the world.
Bill Kurtis of Investigative Reports® and American Justice® goes into the labs of the CILHI to see how they examine years - and often decades - old remains in order to bring closure to determine the fate of missing servicemen. The three cases in the spotlight in MIA: SOLVED include a pilot lost in one of the last dogfights of World War II and four best friends who disappeared during the battle of Guadalcanal.
