A missing person is a person who has disappeared for usually unknown reasons. Missing persons' photographs may be posted on bulletin boards, milk cartons, postcards, and websites, along with a phone number to be contacted if a sighting has been made. People disappear for many reasons. Some individuals choose to disappear alone; most of these soon return. Reasons for non-identification may include: To escape child abuse, such as child physical abuse, emotional abuse, by a parent(s) / guardian(s) / sibling(s) (especially). Leaving home to live somewhere else under a new identity. Becoming the victim of kidnapping. Abduction (of a minor) by a non-custodial parent or other relative. Seizure by government officials without due process of law. Suicide in a remote location or under an assumed name (to spare their families the suicide at home, or to allow their deaths to be eventually declared in absentia). Victim of murder (body disguised, destroyed, or hidden). Mental illness or other ailments such as Alzheimer's Disease can cause someone to become lost, or they may not know how to identify themselves due to long term memory loss that causes them to forget where they live, the identity of family members or relatives or even their own names. Death by natural causes (disease) or accident far from home without identification. Disappearance in order to take advantage of better employment or living conditions elsewhere. Sold into slavery, serfdom, sexual servitude, or other unfree labour. To avoid discovery of a crime or apprehension by law-enforcement authorities. (See also failure to appear). Joining a cult or other religious organization. To escape domestic abuse. To avoid war or persecution during a genocide. To escape famine or natural disaster. By the end of 2005, there were 109,531 active missing person records according to the US Department of Justice. Children under the age of 18 account for 58,081 (53.03%) of the records and 11,868 (10.84%) were for young adults between the ages of 18 and 20. During 2005, 834,536 entries were made into the National Crime Information Center's missing person file, which was an increase of 0.51% from the 830,325 entered in 2004. Missing Person records that were cleared or canceled during the same period totaled 844,838. The 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. A common misconception is that a person must be absent for at least 24 hours before being legally classed as missing, but this is rarely the case; in instances where there is evidence of violence or of an unusual absence, law enforcement agencies often stress the importance of beginning an investigation promptly. In most common law jurisdictions a missing person can be declared dead in absentia (or "legally dead") after seven years. This time frame may be reduced in certain cases, such as deaths in major battles or mass disasters such as the September 11, 2001 attacks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_children
Airdate: October 4, 2013 Held captive in 2002 by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Barzee, 14-year old Smart was chained up, sexually abused and dressed in disguise. Held first in the mountains of Utah, Smart's captors took her to Southern California until she devised a plan to convince them that they should all return to Utah, hopeful that her chances of rescue would be better -- closer to home. She was right -- nine months after she was abducted, Smart was rescued. She ultimately found the strength to confront her kidnappers in court and move on with her life. Today, Smart has courageously transformed from "victim" to "advocate." She created the Elizabeth Smart Foundation to help prevent crimes against children, and is traveling around the country to educate, inspire and foster change.

Carlina White Abducted as Infant in 1987 Meets Family Missing New York baby found 23 years later Woman Abducted as Infant in 1987 Meets Family It was an abduction that made headlines and stunned the authorities: A 3-week-old infant, taken to a Manhattan hospital in August 1987 for treatment of a fever, was snatched by a woman dressed in nurse's clothes and never heard from again. Two decades later, with investigators stumped and the case cold, the parents of the abducted girl refused to give up hope, believing that someday their daughter might return. Their prayers were answered. Carlina White, now 23 and living in Georgia, was reunited with her biological parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson, bringing an end to one of the most baffling missing persons cases in the New York Police Department's files. The reunion brought elation to a mother and father racked by pain and anger for over two decades, and a new family for a woman who had long held suspicions about her past. The improbable case began on Aug. 4, 1987, when Carlina, 19 days old, was taken to Harlem Hospital with a fever. About two hours after being admitted, Carlina disappeared from a pediatrics ward, and detectives quickly narrowed in on a mysterious woman who had consoled Carlina's worried mother and had been seen lingering around the hospital in a nurse's uniform. A suspect was later questioned but could not be connected to the abduction. Carlina was taken to Connecticut and then Georgia, the police said, raised under a different name by a woman who treated her poorly. Carlina's suspicions started to grow around her 16th birthday, partly "because the family and her don't resemble each other," Sheena White said. Mr. Browne said, "She has held the view, for a long time, that she did not belong to the family she was living with." As her suspicions grew, Carlina White started to investigate, at one point visiting the Web site of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. It was on that site, Mr. Browne said, where she found a photo of an infant and believed it was a photo of herself. She then called her biological mother, Joy White, who in turn called the police, not knowing if the young woman really was her daughter. Detective Brown said Ms. White's story "sounded very unusual and very dramatic," and so he decided not to simply refer her to the department's missing persons' investigators. Rather, he called them himself to relay the details. Those investigators eventually took DNA samples from Joy White and Carl Tyson, who separated years ago and went on to raise separate families, and checked their DNA against Carlina's. "The daughter's natural instincts were confirmed with DNA swabs," Mr. Browne said. The detectives from the original case, he added, "are elated." "It has always bothered them that this kid was never found," he said. Mr. Browne said the case was still an active criminal investigation and would not discuss or name any suspects. "Obviously the missing-person aspect of it is closed, but the abduction part of it is not," he said. "We have our suspicions of who may be responsible, but not enough probable cause to permit an arrest." Detectives got the official word of the DNA match on Tuesday night. But even before then, Carlina White and her biological family felt so strongly about their connection that they did not wait for the test results: They reunited on Friday night in the Bronx. She could not be immediately reached for comment. On her Twitter account, she noted that she planned to move to New York City and was looking forward "to Sunday dinner." Her mother, who always contended that her daughter was alive and even used Carlina White's name as her e-mail address, was overwhelmed. "I know that she never gave up," Sheena White said. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE3DC163AF936A3575BC0A961948260

Courtesy Trumbull County Deputy Chief Ernie Cook via WKBN. A volunteer who was riding around the field on his four-wheeler came across her sleeping in some tall grass when he called 911. "I found baby Rainn and she's alive!" he said right away. She was asleep on the ground when he located her, and he can be heard asking the dispatcher many times if he can pick her up because she was crying. The area where she was found, near Peck Leach Road and State Route 45 is less than 1000 feet from the home she was last seen at. "You're okay baby," he can be heard telling Rainn many times before he picks her up. About halfway through the call, she can be heard crying in the background of the call. "Is that her I hear?" the dispatcher asks. "I hear her. Oh, I just got goosebumps." "Oh my God, me too," the caller said. "I couldn't give up on this kid. Thank God." Within just a few minutes, Rainn was placed in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital for evaluation. As of Sunday night, she was in stable condition. Rainn was last seen at her grandparents' home on State Route 45 in North Bloomfield Friday evening around 6:30 p.m. The Trumbull County Sheriff said that she was wearing a purple shirt, gray pants and multi-colored pink and lime green shoes. She was found wearing the same shirt and pants. Multiple agencies were involved in the search, including BCI (Bureau of Criminal Investigation), the Trumbull County sheriff's office, the FBI, the Marshal's office as well as representatives from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
