About Idaho Missing Person Clearinghouse:
Established in 1999, the IMPC is a crucial resource hub dedicated to identifying and supporting state and national endeavors to locate missing individuals. A missing person, by definition, is someone whose whereabouts are unknown to parents, caretakers, or others with regular contact. This encompasses a spectrum, ranging from runaway children to those involuntarily abducted or individuals suffering from Alzheimer's.
