    MISSING MIGRANTS  since 2014

MISSING MIGRANTS PROJECT

Missing Migrants Project records since 2014 people who die in the process of migration towards an international destination, regardless of their legal status. As collecting information is challenging, all figures remain undercounts. The locations in most cases are approximate. Each number represents a person, as well as the family and community that they leave behind.

Disclaimer: The boundaries and names shown and the designations used on this map do not imply official endorsement or acceptance by the International Organization for Migration.
Data represent minimum estimates and locations are approximate. The latest incident recorded occurred on 06 June 2024.
