International Day of the Disappeared

Monday, August 27th, 2012

It seems as if with all of the available technology, finding someone would be easy. Doing a quick people search can help you find relatives, old classmates or friends. There are cases, however, when it seems as if loved ones fall off the face of the Earth and there is no hope of finding them.

What Is The International Day Of The Disappeared?

The International Day of the Disappeared was started with the hope of finding those lost in war, conflict, violence or no known cause. The hope is to bring together families and loved ones torn apart from life’s most unusual events. In many cases, those missing are military personnel, though they may also be civilian victims of the war as well.
