US Department of Justice states that Florida is one of the three states that have the highest number of missing persons
According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System of the US Department of Justice, there is a concerning number of missing individuals in the United States, with a total of 22,740 cases reported in the last year.
Furthermore, it is not surprising that states with larger populations have higher reports of missing persons. As a result, the most populated states, California, Texas, and Florida, also have the highest number of missing persons.
Florida has 1,650 open missing person cases, making it one of the three states with the greatest need for attention in addressing this issue.
Furthermore, there is a noticeable gender disparity, with a higher number of missing native men compared to native women, which is a trend observed across all ethnic and racial groups. However, what’s alarming is that Florida is among the states with the highest number of missing persons in the United States.
On the other hand, the three states are followed by Alaska, which also has an alarmingly high rate of missing individuals. However, the missing cases in Florida continue to spark concern among the citizens. Something similar happened in Florida two days ago, on June 4, 2023, when Ashley Peppard from Orlando went missing.
Her family stated that all they knew was that she was visiting a new friend. At the moment, authorities have not revealed any details about Ashley Peppard, and the mystery of her being missing continues.
