National Missing Persons Day History

On May 25, 1983, National Missing Persons Day was established to recognize and raise awareness of all the missing person cases that exist around the nation. Every year, thousands of people disappear without a trace. These individuals could be adults or youngsters, and while many of them might reappear in the future, some will always remain unknown.

An individual who is missing is one whose whereabouts are unknown and for whom there is no official declaration of life or death. For the loved ones of these missing people, who are never sure if their loved one is safe, the uncertainty is incredibly upsetting.

When someone tries to flee harsh situations with their parents or partners, they may go missing voluntarily. Although there are many instances of kidnapping by strangers, the majority of the time it’s by someone the missing person knows or is acquainted with in some way, which is another reason they might have vanished.
It’s possible that someone went missing because they lost their memory, which made them disoriented. In the worst-case situation, though, it’s possible that they perished in a way that is hard to verify, as in a marine accident or a natural disaster.

Although police usually look into situations involving missing people, volunteer search and rescue teams may be organized in the United States to help find the missing individual. These teams play a crucial role in the rescue of individuals who vanish from hiking paths.
