Over the last two years, Mexican law enforcement has managed to locate less than 1 percent of all disappeared people in the country, according to a recent report by El Daily Post. The Mexican daily came to the conclusion by comparing data from two different federal government bodies.
According to figures from the Special Unit for the Search for Disappeared Persons, which was created by the office of the attorney general, Mexican law enforcement managed to locate 112 disappeared people over the last two years. Only 77 of them were found alive. In the same time period, however, the National Register of Missing and Disappeared Persons documented 26,928 missing people (this number does not include the found 112 people). The numbers unfortunately suggest if people go missing in Mexico, they are more than likely to stay missing.
