Where are The Missing?

Major migrations, war, political instability and organized crime all contribute to persons going missing. Efforts to advance the rule of law, and technological progress especially in the fields of informatics and the forensic sciences have given investigators powerful tools to locate the missing, often under difficult conditions and after a substantial passage of time. The experience of ICMP shows that effective assistance can be deployed quickly and efficiently anywhere in the world to address missing persons issues.

This section will seek to examine where persons are missing in the world, the circumstances of their disappearance and what, if anything is being done to address the issue in a given context.
