According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the exact number of missing persons in Iraq is difficult to estimate, however, even low estimates are in the hundreds of thousands. Unfortunately, the process of looking for a family member or loved one can be both complicated and dangerous given the current violence and insecurity in Iraq. The ICRC reports that it can be life-threatening to even ask about a relative's whereabouts, dangerous to make the trip to recover a body if located, and psychologically tormenting to continue to live in doubt and anguish.
