According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) there were a total of 242,295 minorities reported as missing from January 1st, 2016 through December 31st, 2016. That’s 37% of the total number of those reported missing. This figure also includes Asians, Indians and Blacks. Hispanics are not broken down by race and are included among Whites.
The National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC’s) Missing Person File was implemented in 1975. Records in the Missing Person File are retained indefinitely, until the individual is located, or the record is canceled by the entering agency. The Missing Person File contains records for individuals reported missing who:
– have a proven physical or mental disability (Disability – EMD),
– are missing under circumstances indicating that they may be in physical danger (Endangered – EME),
– are missing after a catastrophe (Catastrophe Victim – EMV),
– are missing under circumstances indicating their disappearance may not have been voluntary
(Involuntary – EMI),
– are under the age of 21 and do not meet the above criteria (Juvenile – EMJ), or
– are 21 and older and do not meet any of the above criteria but for whom there is a reasonable concern for their safety (Other – EMO).
As of December 31, 2016, NCIC contained 88,040 active missing person records. Juveniles under the age of 18 account for 33,706 (38.3%) of the records and 42,807 (48.6%) records when juveniles are defined as under 21 years of age.*
During 2016, 647,435 missing person records were entered into NCIC, an increase of 1.9% from the 634,908 records entered in 2015. Missing Person records purged during the same period totaled 644,294. Reasons for these removals include: a law enforcement agency located the subject, the individual returned home, or the record had to be removed by the entering agency due to a determination that the record is invalid.
The Missing Person Circumstances (MPC) field is optional and has been available since July 1999 when the NCIC 2000 upgrade became operational. Of the 647,435 records entered in 2016, the MPC field was utilized in 315,995 (48.8%). When the MPC field was utilized in 2016 entries, 303,237 (96%) were coded as Runaway, 2,107 (.7%) as Abducted by Non-custodial Parent, 303 (.1%) as Abducted by Stranger, and 10,348 (3.3%) as Adult – Federally required entry. In 2015, the MPC field was utilized in 313,403 (49.4%) of the 634,908 records.
* This fulfills requirements as set forth in Public Law 101-647, 104 statute 4967, Crime Control Act of 1990 stating the Attorney General is to publish a statistical summary of reports of missing children. This act was modified April 7, 2003, by “Suzanne’s Law” that changed the age of mandatory missing person record entry from under 18 to under 21 years of age. [ref. 42 USC 5779(c)]
