Guest: Helen Connelly, Program Administrator at the National Criminal Justice Training Center  Did you know that approximately 2,300 Americans go missing every day? For such a big number, we’re remarkably unaware of all the different stories of missing persons. Homeless people, veterans, undocumented immigrants, and those with physical or mental disabilities who go missing are often unrecognized or forgotten by the general public. The 9th Annual National Missing and Unidentified Persons’ Conference is currently underway in Atlanta, Georgia. The purpose of the conference is to inspire people to not give up hope on missing persons; to “identify ways to locate and protect missing persons and provide effective strategies for understanding how to best serve hidden victim populations and their families.”
