I read up about this, and some of those people don't want to be found. They did a story on a person that "disappeared" and was very very upset when found!

There are explanations for some, but some have us scratching our heads like the Missing 411 cases.

Some don't wish to be found, some get lost in the wilderness, some are murdered, some were taken by human traffickers etc. BUT, what happened to the others??

Yep. I know of at least two people who did. One of them was a girl who disappeared from her apartment several years ago. I knew a bunch of people who knew her. There was a big investigation, and the circumstances surrounding the case were really strange. There are lots of rumors. She's still missing to this day.

Last year, 9,122 kids were reported missing, and only 143 -- or one-and-a-half percent -- were considered suspicious. We want to be careful that when we ask for your attention about a missing person, it's because we're almost certain it's really needed.

Why does the media cover some missing-persons cases and not others? | 9news.com

Missing Children Statistics

In 2017 NCMEC assisted law enforcement and families with more than 27,000 cases of missing children.

Case type:

• 91 percent endangered runaways.
• 5 percent family abductions.
• 3 percent critically missing young adults, ages 18 to 20.
• Less than 1 percent nonfamily abductions.
• Less than 1 percent lost, injured or otherwise missing children.

Of the nearly 25,000 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2017, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking. Of those, 88 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.

I wonder how many of those missing people wound up on someone's dinner table?


Of those missing people I guess about two thirds actually may have just left their home towns and moved away, working for cash in different areas and staying off the governments radar. It also includes prostitutes and even sex trafficing victims and runaways. The other third, they could have been killed, eaten, or drowned or anything else, many overdosed on drugs but they never got identified.

That is a lot of people who died even when you think about a third of that number. Many of the other two thirds might wish they had died if they are living a life of enslavement.

I hate this thing of posting up outrageous statistics with no logical analysis.

A potentially revealing thread turns into nonsense.

A similar thread posted last week and I got abuse for explaining how the figure was bunkem.

The figure hasn’t even been broken down over the ten year period or realised as a percentage of the population.

Come on people this isn’t Facebook.

I report people as missing to the police all the time at work, it's a regular chore. Mentally ill wandering off, not bothering to tell staff where they're going.

They always turn up, usually in an hour or two.

They don't vanish into thin air.

This response from you seems really lame. Lazy. You post a thread , sound the alarm, but are "too busy" to do a quick couple of Google searches to make your thread more well-informed. Basically you're saying "Here is a statistic. I would rather you jump to a doom porn conclusion than be well-informed."

Lame.

Exactly. And the person who authored the thread is "too busy" and wants the thread readers to do his or her research for them.

Statstics without context are useless.

Normally the cops will not investigate until after hour 24 if they are a adult and it will not be logged in the system if they are not in any harm or needing meds etc
