The Extent of the Problem
Over 600,000 individuals become missing persons in the United States every year. Fortunately, many missing children and adults are quickly found, alive and well. However, tens of thousands of individuals remain missing for more than one year – what many agencies consider “cold cases”.
It is estimated that 4,400 unidentified bodies are recovered each year, with approximately 1,000 of those bodies remaining unidentified after one year.

Some statistics from Namus:
Fortunately, it appears from those statistics that no single racial group is more prone than the others to have any of its members go missing, in spite of some claiming that they do.
