Missing and Vulnerable Task Force

History of this site


There are thousands upon thousands of persons missing in the United States at any moment. Although 97% will return home within a week, there are many who, unfortunately, will not. 

There are so many parents, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, children, friends and more who suffer a terrible loss of not knowing and often do not know where to turn. For these people, missing persons are more than what you read about in the news. They live a never-ending nightmare with days, weeks, months, and years of unresolved grieving.

This web site was launched to promote public awareness of Maryland's missing and unidentified persons, assist in finding missing persons, and to provide support and resources for those dealing with missing person situations. This website has a network of involved persons: police, forensic specialists, Doenetwork volunteers, family members of missing persons, and many more known as the 'Maryland Missing Persons Network.' 

This web site does list unidentified homicide victims. I debated at first whether or not to put this here, especially because it could be upsetting to families of missing persons. Being that several unidentifieds found in Maryland are juveniles, I decided that not putting them here would withhold the potential for public recognition. I suggest that those with an emotional intolerance to brutality to not visit this section. This section is not suitable for children to view. There is also a 'Unidentified children' section devoted to the thousands of unidentified juveniles found across the US.

I'm more than happy to add cases of missing persons in Maryland with exception. The case must be filed with a law enforcement agency. I will not add profiles of lost loves, deadbeat parents, missing classmates, and children caught in child custody battles. 

If you have any suggestions, inquiries, information or comments please direct them to [email protected].
