Most of these people disappeared on black nights, far out at sea.

You want to make a workforce for the D.U.M.B.S.?
Let's take three countries, Canada, the US and the UK. The child missing stats are 66,000, 650,000 and 150,000 every year without a trace. Add to that missing adults between the three of another 500,000 per year. Now, where the hell do all these people go? Kids that are 4 to 12 years old generally don't have the smarts to manufacture fake ID. Teens between 12 and 17, well maybe some are runaways and others are exported for use in the sex/slave trade. Adults, some may just want to fall off the radar, but not all. Remember, that these people rarely if ever show again, kids, teens or adults.
If you wanted a trainable workforce, you start with trainable minds and I would expect kids between 12 and 18 would work out best. The rest I guess would be kept fed, housed and would be taught the basics until their necessary injection into the underground workforce.
But more importantly, children are our future, why is there so little impetus placed on finding them? Something is not right here, the kids especially should be found.

^ whoaa, didnt realize that many American youth/people are missing, in the millions and over half a million more each year added onto that.
This part of the article indicated there was probably around 800K in total, but a lot of them were figured out. What's more important is the people who disappear without a trace, especially the children. I do not believe for a second so many children go missing due to natural circumstances, they could be used for underground personal or something like that, I have no idea.
About half of the roughly 800,000 missing juvenile cases in 2001 involved runaways, and another 200,000 were classified as family abductions related to domestic or custody disputes.

Suicide, accident or murder. It's not hard to fall or be pushed over a balcony. And at night with nobody to see you go in, you won't even be noticed as missing until the ship reaches port.
