In 2016, there were nearly 73 million children in the United States, and 465,676 were reported missing. Out of the approximately 73 million children in the United States, 1 million are Native Americans. Of this 1 million, only 7,700 were reported missing. Although this number of missing Native children is considered inaccurate, it shows that 1 in 130 Native children are likely to go missing each year. Compared to 1 in 157 non-Native children. Statistics on missing Native youth are limited, since there is still no centralized reporting system. Data on crime in Indian Country is under-reported to tribal authorities and, in turn, to federal authorities. Of the 179 AMBER Alerts issued for 231 children in 2016, only 12 were identified as Native youth.
