The Vermont State Police website only lists; "It's up to the investigators to put time into the cases when they can," said Oliver, who oversees a state police Web site that features photographs and details of 11 of Vermont's bigger missing-person cases. "A couple of these will never be solved." Please do not think that there are 15 or 20 more missing people to add to Vermont.(this statement is not at all meant to disrespect the ones who do not know the true number,it is to respect the family and friends of the missing that are not counted on the VSP website or any other website for that matter.) There were... There were 1,039 reports of missing persons in Vermont in 2004, according to statistics kept by the Vermont Crime Information Center. Nationally, the number of people reported missing annually is more than 800,000. Vermont had 631 missing person reports in the first six months of 2005, but listed only 78 "active cases" They can only research a certain amount,the ones they cannot research are listed as inactive until they are checked into and called active.That is not counting people that have been missing as far back as the 40's.Sad to say that when it comes to missing person resources on the internet for Vermont yields very few cases. The mystery about what happened to some missing persons seems impenetrable, even with the new investigative tools police have at their disposal, including DNA evidence technology and massive national missing-person databases. No missing persons case should be left behind no matter how old it is.It should not matter how old it is.Every state should have a task force that devote their time to current missing persons and a task force for missing person cold cases only.
