Boatload of people added to Missouri Highway Patrol site

The Missouri Highway Patrol, which lists missing people from that state, has added quite a lot of missing adults to their listings. Unfortunately most of them don’t have posters and some don’t even have pictures. I will have to post a lot of bare-bones casefiles for these people, but it’s better than nothing. Maybe posters for them will be added soon.

    Still, I am glad they are posting SOMETHING. Sort of like the WASPC website. Almost no photos, but I can get some info from them.

    Good Lord! Is there anyone NOT missing in Missouri? So, so many. How sad for them and their families.

      Actually, there’s no indication that this isn’t pretty typical number given the population of the state. I have no idea how many people disappear in each state each year — I don’t think anyone does. State databases are never complete.

      Try looking at the California Department of Justice, Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit website at http://ag.ca.gov/missing/ . There are over 2,000 profiles on it, all with photographs.

        I wish all states had a database like California does.

        Jennifer Marra (the woman who founded the MPCCN) remembered when the database first went online. She said it had only like 75 people on it at first.
