The Report was sent by the Executive Secretary of the National Public Security System and it points out that according to statistics of the State instances, except for Baja California Sur, the missing and disappeared people tends to be higher in the South and Central States and very lowering in the Southeast States.

RNPED has improved its methods and work regarding revision, depuration, actualization and publication of its records of Non Located People (nice euphemism), coordination to seek and locate people and normativity regarding missing and unallocated people, however it’s very shameful having to speak about such a number (almost 28 thousand) of missing and disappeared Mexicans nowadays.
