The Women in Doe
Every day roughly 2,000 people go missing in the United States, most are found within hours or days. There are an estimated 80,000 active missing persons cases in the US and 40,000 unidentified bodies, numbers that are inexact due to inconsistent reporting, documentation, and cooperation between reporting agencies.
Doe began as a project to write about missing and unidentified women in the United States as a way to raise these stories in our collective memory and to honor these women. Doe only captures a small fragment of these stories. I hope that in reading Doe you will carry their stories with you. Here, I have gathered information about each woman in Doe.
