Among the reasons cited for disproportionate black disappearance figures are poor training and dismissive attitudes. A majority of black missing children are classified as runaways, and don't receive Amber Alerts. For black adults, police usually link their disappearances to criminal activity, and are usually dismissed. It is clear there is a stark racial divide in news coverage of such incidents.
