Mexico Sets Up Online Missing Persons Portal

Mexico has launched a new Web site with profiles of the country’s missing. It’s nowhere near finished – there are over 25,000 people missing as of last April, and only 467 people in the database. “To set up a missing person’s profile, relatives must first obtain a preliminary investigation number from the Attorney General. The profiles include a photo, personal information such as birthdate and identifying features and where and when they disappeared.”
