Nobody knows exactly how many people have gone "missing" or "disappeared" since the outbreak of war. Estimates run to 20 000. AI supports the relatives of the "disappeared" and "missing" in their efforts to clarify the fate of their loved ones. AI is calling of the governments of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, of Bosnia-Herzegovina and of Croatia, as well as the Bosnian Serb de facto authorities, to account for their whereabouts. This report contains 29 cases of "disappearance", researched and documented by AI with the help and consent of the families involved.
