   A long-awaited DNA bank for missing persons is operational after years of delays and is now collecting samples with the goal of identifying human remains, victims, and repeat but unidentified criminals across the country.
   Relatives, as well as police, coroners and medical examiners, will now be able to submit DNA samples either from themselves, from human remains or from personal effects of a victim or missing person in order to try and identify them.
    Voluntary submissions to a new victim-profiling database could also help police link cases and identify serial offenders.
