Missing Persons Software
To validate a new potential business idea by determining the market need and competitive landscape for missing persons software.
Missing Persons Software Market Need
The missing persons software market is currently distinct from the more established global industry for lost and found software, which primarily focuses on lost goods in the
airlines and hotels businesses
However, the need for software specifically focused on finding missing persons remains
large and growing
According to the FBI and the National Crime Information Center, the incidence of abductions and/or missing persons has grown by
444% in the past 20 years
of all missing persons are children, and these missing person reports for minors amount to approximately
per day or
1 every 40
seconds in the US.
While very few (
1 in 10,000
) missing children are not found alive, a much higher percentage (
2 in 20
) of those involved in familiy abductions are not found alive.
In all of these cases, timing is considered critical in ensuring the safety of an abducted person, given that
of deaths due to abduction take place within

Chinese Child Missing Prevention Platform (CCMP) app
National Missing and Unidentified Persons System
Technology to Recover Abducted Kids (TRAK)
However, privately available solutions are also provided by
