I'm looking for statistics on how long American adults go missing for.

A friend of someone I know has gone missing. For no reason other than my own morbid curiosity, I am looking for statistics concerning how long most American adult people go missing for, and whether most people that are found are alive or dead.

I got to thinking what I would do if someone I knew disappearred, and I figured that I'd like to know some numbers before anything like that ever happened. I plan on keeping this information to myself and not telling anyone who is dealing with the situation.

Kelly Jolkowski at Project Jason, might have some info or at least some links for you. She's a very nice lady, always willing to help.

This doesn't really answer your question at all, but I had a friend go missing once...phone was off, did not return messages, did not come to work, was not at home, other friends had not seen her, car was abandoned in a temporary parking spot. It looked bad, but we were only actively trying to find her for a day before she turned up (although nobody had heard from her the weekend before either).

Hope the friend turns up soon...that's a terrifying experience.
