The bodies were part of a cluster of nine who were victims of road accidents and had remained unidentified for close to four months.

Mama Lucy Medical Superintendent Musa Mohamed urged members of the public who may be related to the seven to arrange for collection of the bodies.

While two bodies are yet to be identified, seven were positively confirmed to be Eugine Wabure Wechuli (ID number 31942404), Peter Macharia Mwango (35626948), Samuel Etili Aiyamai (29601734), Daniel Oruru Amuzama (14433995), Raphael Kwetu Kasamani (25780813), Dismas Leokono (21852126) and Benjamin Boma Wasike (24205386).

"Occasionally, we receive accident victims whose identity is not known or have no relatives accompanying them when being admitted for treatment and that is why we involved the homicide police to help us," Dr Musa stated.

Process one has to go through when a loved one goes missing in Kenya

The process of finding a loved one when they go missing in Kenya is quite intricate, especially when the missing person is not a prominent personality.

First, the family has to file a missing person's report at the nearest police station after about 48 hours after the last time the person was seen.

In case the police station does not have a Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detective at hand, then the report is forwarded to the nearest police station with a DCI officer.

From there, police can request access to the missing person's phone records from the network providers to assist in tracking the last location where the phone was active.

The families are normally advised to look in hospitals and morgues, though this is not part of the work DCI investigators will assist with.

Putting out digital posters of the missing person has also help find a number of missing children in recent years.

The police will keep the case file active until the person is found dead or alive, most cases take years.
