This is a mystery! Why so much missing people cases around the world? We usually think many of them are unexplained. Let’s discuss a bit on this important topic, perhaps you know someone who has been missing and you are investigating.
There is a variety of reasons why a person will disappear in a mysterious way! Most of them are natural. In many cases, you notice the person who is missing had a fight at home or with his/her friends. Human beings are sensitive, we have feelings, if you have hurt someone verbally or physically, the person can leave the house.
Another reason is a broken relationship either in love or friendship! Many youngsters do this. They are desperate in life because they are in pain. Hence, a part of them decided to leave the place. There is also education! A student who has failed the exams can decide to not return home for sometimes because he/she can get severe problems.
Not all had the same problems! If some have left their home because of a broken relationship, others have probably left to be with their lover. A person can be disappeared by natural disasters. Kidnapping is an another big cause of missing people. Children and adults can be kidnapped for ransom. Terrorists often do it. The kidnapping of politicians and journalists are often common. Finally, mental illness like Alzheimer can be a reason for a person to be missed.
Alien abduction, human sacrifice…?
Apart the traditional and common reasons why someone is missing, there are others who think the person has disappeared mysteriously! Alien abduction comes first in such situation. We have many people who claim they have been abducted by aliens for experiments. Some have returned while others disappeared completely without leaving a trace.
Witchcraft is still common globally, particularly in countries with low literacy rate! What is disturbing, it can involve human sacrifice. Some persons have been killed for rituals.
Does the person return?
When a person is missing, it brings fear, tension, panic, stress, etc. You start worrying, crying, searching everywhere. There are missing cases where the missing person did return later. Some returned after months or years. Unfortunately, we have also where the persons have been found dead or never returned!
It is extremely difficult to get an official statistics by countries. About 900,000 people are reported missing in United States only. Most of them have been found while the rest not. Many who have been found were also dead. In Australia, about 35,000 disappear per year.
What to do?
If you know someone is missing, you must take it seriously! In many countries, you cannot report a missing case to the police before an amount of time, such as 48 or 72 hours. The first thing you must do is to inform anyone you know like your neighbors, parents, friends and relatives. Consult everyone on the streets by asking if they have seen the missing person. Always carry a good photo if possible of the missing person if you have. Go in places where the missing person often passes his/her time. The more you describe the missing person to them, the more it is better because they can easily figure out.
Go to your nearby police station to make a complaint. Give the policemen the maximum details. They will start doing their researches by their own. The web is useful nowadays for such problem. You can communicate the bad news on social networks, more people will know! There are websites which are specialized in reporting missing persons which you can use. You can start publishing the missing person’s photo on newspapers, contact the local radio and television station as well to inform the public. You can paste the missing person’s photo portrait on streets. Some people will prefer to offer a reward to find the missing person.
When a person is missing, it is like the sky has fallen on your head! It is impossible to stay in peace, because fear and panic will invade your mind and heart. If you do the necessary research procedures, there is a greater chance you can find the person back again. If the person has left home because of a fight or whatever, try to convince him/her to return back without letting him to commit something stupid like suicide!
