Bringing awareness to the magnitude of the number of Oregon's missing, and the highlighting of individual cases is something that I am interested in helping with.
At any given time, there are around 1,000 missing people in Oregon. That number included recent cases and cold cases both. Several months ago, there were 160 unidentified people in the OSP morgue. Earlier this month, they were down to 122, and the progress in bringing closure to the families is very important.
I have been tracking Oregon's missing people since March 2017. Approximately every couple of months, I print out the Oregon State Police's missing list, divide it up by counties and then share some of that info in various places. This is intended to be a resource for law enforcement, investigators, researchers and families.
I have created six new FB pages where I have divided things up into certain geographical areas. I divided up the map of Oregon state into the following six areas, and then divided those areas up by counties. I am posting the missing from each county, updating the OSP data every other month. Info from NameUs, the John Doe Network and other sources are included in the comment section under each county.
