The number draws even more attention when compared, for example, with the total for 2018 when, throughout the year, there were 51 reported cases, of which 10 children or adolescents remain missing.
Family conflicts are the main reasons why teenagers disappear, accounting for more than 75% of the problems, according to the institution maintained by the state government.
