About the Missing Persons Center
The Missing Persons Center is the world's largest grass roots project to profile missing people. And we are a pending 501(c)(3) organization.
This is a place you can make a difference by being part of a movement that no longer counts solely on the efforts of law enforcement, but actively profiles, searches and discusses old and new case files.
Year after year, it seems as if more and more people are being reported missing on a global basis. Many cases don't get any press and most of the world has no idea of all the missing people that need to be found.
We can't sit back and count on law enforcement to find everyone or even some of the people. We, as a global community need to keep our eyes open for people who need our help wherever you are.
Our platform is designed for families, members of the general public and law enforcement.
For families, it allows them a place to maintain the profile and public information that they want to share with searchers and the general public in an informative, accurate and dignified way. And it can be updated 24/7 at a moments notice because are always subject to change and having the latest information available is critical.
Generic profiling is not usually updated by the organizations tasked with publishing the information, so now the family has direct access to maintain their missing person file all the time.
Keeping the record up to date is essential when being shared with the news media and others that can social share the information but also keep it in the media spotlight.
We don't want to see a single missing person's case fall through the cracks, never to be heard from or seen again for lack of effort.
Publicly reported missing persons numbers cannot be confirmed.
Do not believe the numbers you see from most reporting agencies around the world, the true number of missing people is far higher than reported.
The numbers indicated below are reported from NamUS and the F.B.I.
NamUs is a national information clearinghouse and resource center for missing, unidentified, and unclaimed person cases across the United States
For far too long there has been inequity on what cases get the most exposure and why. This has no doubt been a factor in many missing persons cases and we are bridging that gap by being able to support an array of services to be sure every case has access to the same resources as any other.
However, we can't do it without the community, everyone working together to seek the truth as quickly as possible.
