In years past, the Colorado Bureau of Investigations has held a Colorado Missing Persons Day event to honor those missing in the state. While the event is virtual this year, CBI said they are still honoring more than 600 people who have been missing for more than a year in the state.
In total, 1,300 people are missing in Colorado and of those, about 600 have been missing for more than a year as of Jan. 31, 2021.
CBI Director John Camper said he’s disappointed the pandemic impacted this year’s plans for Colorado Missing Persons Day.
“While we cannot gather in person, it’s important to remember that we at the CBI never forget the struggles of the families of the missing,” he said. “Marshalling our resources and those of our partner agencies to seek new leads is a top priority to shed new light on these critical cases.”
Family and friends needing extra support during this time can call a CBI victim advocate at 303-239-4649.
