During the Pinochet regime, thousands of people were “disappeared” by the security forces. Their families and friends continue to look for them and for answers as to what happened to them and why.
The world over people are “disappeared.” Sometimes this is the action of a shadowy underworld but more often and more effectively it is the result of governments.
