AMNESIA and the MISSING
Another clue to why someone is missing could be amnesia. How often does amnesia occur and how long does it last? Some information can be found in the link below. Feel free to discuss amnesia as a reason for a person going missing.

Most cases last for weeks or months, rather than years -- when UCLA honors student Ahmad Yaseen Arain vanished on his way to campus in 2004, he re-appeared six weeks later across the border in Tijuana with amnesia.

From what I understand, total amnesia is incredibly rare. Most cases are psychological; people don't want to face their reality and "forget" who they are.
There are many different types of amnesia and many causes, such as trauma, a pathology of some sort, or like I said, a psychiatric issue.

I used to be an accountant at a warehouse in Phoenix. One of the casual labor guys was from California. He woke up in a hospital bed, unable to remember anything. He had been mugged in a park and severly beaten. All he could remember of his past life was wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. He was badly disfigured from the attack Nobody ever claimed him and he worked day labor until he was killed by a hit and run driver.
Amnesia really happens.MOO
