Quote from IRC website: "The issue of missing persons in Bosnia and Herzegovina continues to burden their families and affect the reconciliation process. Significant progress has been made in locating and identifying missing persons. However, thousands of families remain without information about their beloved relatives.
According to the Missing Persons Institute of Bosnia and Herzegovina (MPI), human remains of at least 22,000 persons have been exhumed, of which around 19,000 persons have been identified (including those identified by the DNA matching procedure run by the International Commission on Missing Persons /ICMP). Almost 600 persons reported missing to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have been located alive. According to the current data of the ICRC, based solely on the tracing requests opened by the families until December 6, 2011, almost 9,500 persons are still unaccounted for in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their names are listed hereafter."
