NCIC Missing Person and Unidentified Person Statistics for 2013

Pursuant to Public Law 101-647, 104 Statute 4967, Crime Control Act of 1990 Requirements

NCIC Missing Person File

The National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) Missing Person File was implemented in 1975.  Records in the Missing Person File are retained indefinitely, until the individual is located, or the record is canceled by the entering agency. The Missing Person File contains records for individuals reported missing who:

  • have a proven physical or mental disability (Disability – EMD),
  • are missing under circumstances indicating that they may be in physical danger (Endangered – EME),
  • are missing after a catastrophe (Catastrophe Victim – EMV),
  • are missing under circumstances indicating their disappearance may not have been voluntary
  • (Involuntary – EMI),
  • are under the age of 21 and do not meet the above criteria (Juvenile – EMJ), or
  • are 21 and older and do not meet any of the above criteria but for whom there is a reasonable concern for their safety (Other – EMO).

As of December 31, 2013, NCIC contained 84,136 active missing person records.  Juveniles under the age of 18 account for 33,849 (40.2 %) of the records and 9,706 (11.5 %) were for juveniles between the ages of 18 and 20. *

During 2013, 627,911 missing person records were entered into NCIC, a decrease of 5.1% from the 661,593 records entered in 2012.  Missing Person records cleared or canceled during the same period totaled 630,990.  Reasons for these removals include:  a law enforcement agency located the subject, the individual returned home, or the record had to be removed by the entering agency due to a determination that the record is invalid.

*This fulfills requirements as set forth in Public Law 101-647, 104 statute 4967, Crime Control Act of 1990 stating the Attorney General is to publish a statistical summary of reports of missing children.  This act was modified

April 7, 2003, by “Suzanne’s Law” that changed the age of mandatory missing person record entry from under 18 to under 21 years of age. [ref. 42 USC 5779(c)]

NCIC Missing Person File

The Missing Person Circumstances (MPC) field is optional and has been available since July 1999 when the NCIC 2000 upgrade became operational.  Of the 627,911 records entered in 2013, the MPC field was utilized in 306,538 (48.8 %).  When the MPC field was utilized in 2013 entries, 293,684 (95.8 %) were coded as Runaway, 2,310 (0.8 %) as Abducted by Non-custodial Parent, 335 (0.1 %) as Abducted by Stranger, and 10,209 (3.3 %) as Adult – Federally required entry.  In 2012, the MPC field was utilized in 322,936 (48.8 %) of the 661,593 records.

Contact Information:
The Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s (CJIS) Special Identities Unit (SIU) NCIC Investigative and Operational Assistance Group (IOAG) distributed monthly NCIC extracts, the Missing Person Active/Expired Analysis and the Unidentified Person Active/Expired Analysis, to each CJIS System Officer and/or to the agency in the state that has been designated as a point of contact.   

The SIU NCIC IOAG routinely responds to requests for nation-wide statistics from law enforcement agencies and the media concerning the NCIC Missing Person and Unidentified Person Files for public release.

The monthly statistics are calculated to address the most frequently requested data.  Archive statistics are available upon request.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact the FBI’s SIU NCIC IOAG at
304-625-3000 or ioau@leo.gov.

NCIC Missing Person File - Yearly Totals and Percent Change

* Records entered do not include supplemental record entry messages which are used to add specific identifiers,
including dental data, to a missing person record on file in NCIC.

** Records removed are a total of the cancel, clear, and locate messages received by the NCIC computer.  Excluded are counts of supplemental record cancellation messages which are used to remove specific identifiers, including dental data, from a missing person record.

NCIC Unidentified Person File

NCIC’s Unidentified Person File came online in 1983.  Records are retained indefinitely, unless removed by the entering agency. The Unidentified Person File contains records of:

  • unidentified deceased persons (Deceased – EUD),
  • persons of any age who are living and unable to determine their identity  (Living – EUL), and
  • unidentified catastrophe victims (Catastrophe Victim – EUV).

As of December 31, 2013, there were 8,045 unidentified person records in NCIC.  During 2013, 866 unidentified person records were entered into NCIC, a decrease of 7.1 % from the 932 records entered in 2012.* The records entered in 2013 consisted of 632 (73.0 %) deceased unidentified bodies, 18 (2.1 %) unidentified catastrophe victims, and 216 (24.9 %) living persons who could not ascertain their identity.  In 2013, 707 records were canceled or cleared by the entering agency for reasons such as the remains being identified or the record being invalid.  This was an 8.1 % decrease over the 768 records canceled in 2012.

*Use of the Unidentified Person File is not mandated by law.

NCIC Unidentified Person File

The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division’s Special Identities Unit (SIU) NCIC Investigative and Operational Assistance Group (IOAG) distributed monthly NCIC extracts, the Missing Person Active/Expired Analysis and the Unidentified Person Active/Expired Analysis, to each CJIS System Officer and/or to the agency in the state that has been designated as a point of contact.

The SIU NCIC IOAG routinely responds to requests for nation-wide statistics from law enforcement agencies and the media concerning the NCIC Missing Person and Unidentified Person Files for public release.

The monthly statistics are calculated to address the most frequently requested data.  Archive statistics are available upon request.
