    I hear ya. Unfortunately, I doubt most of these folks are having a good time.

    Missing Persons Statistics and Facts 2,300 a Day Crime Library on truTV.com

    eports of missing persons have increased sixfold in the past 25 years, from roughly 150,000 in 1980 to about 900,000 this year. The increase was driven in part by the country's growing population. But the numbers also indicate that law enforcement treats the cases more seriously now, including those of marginalized citizens.

    An astounding 2,300 Americans are reported missing every day, including both adults and children.

    But only a tiny fraction of those are stereotypical abductions or kidnappings by a stranger.

    For example, the federal government counted 840,279 missing persons cases in 2001. All but about 50,000 were juveniles, classified as anyone younger than 18.

    FBI NCIC Missing Person and Unidentified Person Statistics for 2010


    The number differ somewhat in the two reports but, still an astonishing number of people who simply disappear.

    Cool thread.

    I've pondered this issue many times.

    Some people just fall of the face of the earth.

    I believe in aliens, and I belive some people were abducted and never returned (or didn't want to return).

    I'm serious.

    Allot of people ask: "if aliens exist why don't they just show themselves."

    As a benevolent alien would you show yourself to this ****ed up world?

    We're only consistently at war with one another (humans) over differences in ideology. What kind of incentive is that for an a different intelligent life form to even make contact when odds are we will kill it.

    Humanity isn't even remotely close to even accepting the idea that we're not alone.

    Or like those 3 girls who recently escaped from that Castro guy.
    A cop I knew said they suspect a LOT of the missing are chained up in somebodys basement.

    That it happens a lot more than people think.

    The captors screwing up is about the only way they're caught.

    Re: America's Missing

    What exactly does it mean to have 'misunderstood or miscommunicated' plans? . . . which really means that the reason could fit into any of the other categories, doesn't it?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It has something to do with parents or whoever making reports too soon. IIRC, in some place you need to wait 3 days to report a missing adult. Children can be reported much sooner.

    Some adults just go missing and are never found.

    I've read many reports of people my age (33) just dropping off the face of the earth.

    Considering some of the situations people find themselves in, disappearing is the best option.
