Mexico: Officials Launch Protocol to Investigate More Than 20,800 Missing Persons

The Office of Victims of Mexico has launched protocols to try to find the more than 20,800 persons who have disappeared in the past six years nationwide, according to Patricia Bugarín, deputy prosecutor for missing persons in the Office of Victims (Províctima). The protocols, which have been presented and accepted in 30 of 32 states, include methods for collecting information provided by relatives, friends, banks, telephone companies and social networks. Prosecutors also must determine whether an abduction is tied to narco-trafficking or organized crime groups, Bugarín added.
