    different people, different circumstances, but I'm curious as to what all of you think happens (happened) Where do you think these people disappear to??

    I think that some people CAN vanish all by themselves. For whatever reason. Money, marital, law problems.....and some are never found. But the people who seem to just vanish off the face of the earth??

    275,000 people go missing every year and 100,000 of them are children. That statistic shocked me...really. we know the face of one famous little girl who went missing years ago but there are so many ignored.

    What do you think happened to these people ?

    Some start new lives and live comfortably others end up on the street, some get pulled into drugs and prostitution.

    Human trafficing, starting a new life and murder.

    In that order.

    Is that permanently missing or do people return? The majority of missing people are found fairly quickly.
    And we might never know.

    I jest. Probably murder, or ending up homeless/addicted to drugs.

    Perhaps some run away and try to make new lives for themselves, others may have been killed, ended up on the streets, perhaps been abducted...

    We may never know unfortunately, it's quite sad really.

    They're abducted by anti-government agents in the pursuit of making a rebel army to March on London in the next few years and reform the country. They want to follow the teachings of the late great Sharon Stone.

    More interestingly is if you disappeared do you think anyone would care. I know no one would care about me. One day I'm gonna deliberately disappear.

    I'd guess less than 10% have had something bad happen to them i.e. death or serious injury. A lot of people, for various reasons, just don't want to be found.

    ...though I watched the 4400 so maybe it's that on a larger scale?

    Vast majority are found which would suggest the main thing is they wanted to lead a alternative lifestyle. Then it goes like:

    - Homeless
    - Kidnapped e.g. human trafficking
    - Dead
