Missing Persons by State

A missing person is defined as an individual whose whereabouts are unknown, regardless of the circumstances surrounding their disappearance. That person is considered ‘missing’ until their location has been confidently established. 

Missing person cases can remain unsolved for years on end, putting the families through much pain and anguish. 

The latest data from NamUs, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, indicates that as of June 2022, there are 21,795 people missing within the United States. 

Although there are usually people that go missing every year, in each state, the states that have the highest total populations tend to also have the highest numbers of people who go missing as well. 

Among those states where the highest number of people have gone missing are California, Texas, Florida, Alaska, and New York.
