Paula, thank you so much for your comments! Yes, it is mindblowing to me too. Even after working in this field for over 25 years, each case still perplexes me. What is also so tragic, is as the years sometimes go by, we lose parents along the way. They pass without ever knowing what happened. My promise to them is to ensure the missing are never forgotten.

Suzie from Carson City on November 01, 2019:

Kym...I don't think we (the general public) have any idea how very many people go missing daily! It's mind-blowing to me. More perplexing are those who never reappear or are found (alive, harmed or dead) and simply remain mysteries for years. This is an unbearable & heart-wrenching situation for any loved one to bear.

Your article is an important reminder..not only reporting on the missing but to all your readers to be ever vigilant while cognizant of this terrible reality. We just never know.

The only good news would be for these cases to be solved.....certainly on a positive note or at least in some way to bring closure for those who have searched, hoped and prayed for so long. Peace, Paula

Kieran Clarke from Newton Abbot on August 23, 2019:

Thank you for producing this article, it proves that every individual has not been forgotten and there are many who hope and pray they are found. Heartbreaking to read, inclined to think the worse, although miracles can and do happen. Just as sad to think that there are some who walk amongst us on this world, that perhaps know the truth.
