    Disappearances are cases in which people have disappeared, political motivation appears likely, and the victims haven’t been found. Knowledge of the whereabouts is not public, but by whom they were taken and the circumstances usually are. A score of 0 indicates that disappearances have occurred frequently in a given year; a score of 1 indicates that disappearances occasionally occurred; and a score of 2 indicates that disappearances did not occur in a given year.
