missing persons statistics - where do they all go??

Missing Persons Statistics

2,300 American people are reported missing on a DAILY basis.

It is estimated that in 2010 over 1,000,000 missing persons will be registered with law enforcement agencies. 814,957 were registered in 2007.

As of December 1, 2007 only 105,229 missing persons cases were considered “active”.

In 2007 only 15.8% of the missing persons cases registered were classified as “locates” by the National Crime Information Center.

It is estimated that 10% of missing persons reported in the US never return home, there is hope.

52% of these “active” cases were juveniles. 11% were considered young adults ages 18-20.

55% of missing adults are men, 40% of them white, 30% African American, 20% Latino.

Only in October of 2001 were adults made inclusive of the National Missing Children’s Organizations national clearinghouse database for missing people—this was called Kristen’s Law. Kristin was also a Charlotte, NC native, like Kyle.

Little legislation since Kristen’s law has been initiated by the government to address the growing problem of missing adults cases in our county. No new laws have been enacted and little federal support has been given.
