Disappearances in Mexico:

According to the National Search Commission ( CNB ), Mexico has a record of 40,180 missing persons and in most cases it has a digital identity, which includes the full name of the victim, date of birth, photography and fingerprint.

Last January, the head of the Commission, Roberto Cabrera , recalled in a press conference that one of the objectives of the CNB is to know who they are, how many they are and where the disappeared people are. "From the purification of the collected records of diverse sources, the National Registry of Disappeared and Non-Localized Persons, which is still under construction, shows that the people who have been registered as disappeared to date, amount to 40,180," said Cabrera.

Cabrera explained that the figure is the result of a general base of 99,129 missing from 2006 to date, of which 62, 436 were located alive. He noted that through the Human Identification Working Group, the CNB "achieved giving identity to more than 400 people who were unidentified; some with more than 10 years without identification. Of the more than 400 cases, only 20 have a report of disappearance. "


  1. Wait, when did 14 dead become an "horror" in MX?

  2. I'm sure its CJNG deceiving innocent people into believing they're applying for a legitimate job and killing them when they resist. Or I'm sure CJNG will come out with a banner claiming everyone in the clandestine tombs were ZETAS and it was done for the good of the community. We all know how CJNG functions already.

  3. Woah, El Cholo hitting Zapopan hard!
