Part 2: “Missing 411” – Parks to Cities, Why Are Bodies Returned?

“These people disappear right in the midst of many others,
and nobody ever sees them leave.”

- David Paulides, Founder CanAm Missing Project and Missing 411 Investigator

In 2011, retired police officer David Paulides launched the Can(ada)Am(erica) Missing Project, which catalogs cases of people who mysteriously disappear — or are found — across North America. David has released six books in his popular Missing 411 series, and now in 2017, a documentary film, Missing 411: The Movie, co-directed by his son, Ben Paulides. See Websites below.

Return to Part 1.

July 28, 2017 Denver, Colorado - The New York City Police Department has a Missing Persons Squad dedicated to searching for people. Last year, more than 13,000 were reported missing in New York City.

ABC's Nightline did a news feature about the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that has had reports as high as 2,000 missing young people a day. Of those, about 115 children each year fall into the “stranger abduction” cases.

Last year of 2016, the National Center reported it had some 20,500 cases of missing children. 90% were endangered runaways; 6% were family abductions; 2% were young adults ages 18 to 20; 1% were lost, injured or missing children; and 1% were non-family abduction. It's in that small 1% category that there are mysterious cases with characteristics like David Paulides's 411 Missing profile. But David's statistics show that most of the missing people he investigates disappeared near — and sometimes reappear dead — near large bodies of water.
