These Are The States With The Most Open Missing Persons Cases


It’s the unthinkable in the age of connectivity. A spouse doesn’t arrive home on time; a colleague fails to show up for work; a child never makes it to class. Even now, people vanish without a trace -- leaving families and law enforcement grasping for clues.

We partnered with"The Missing," a limited series premiering November 15th on Starz, to show which states have the most open missing persons cases per capita. We picked five of the most baffling disappearances. Read the files, weigh the evidence and if you have any information about these cases, alert the authorities.

NOTE: Our map was compiled using open missing cases data from The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System and the most recent U.S. Census.
