Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost released the 2020 Ohio Missing Children Clearinghouse Report Tuesday.

According to the release, clearinghouse documented 21,520 people reported missing in 2020. That number is 2,772 fewer than in 2019.

The report says 16,332 of the 21,520 reported missing were children with 8,396 females being females, 7,935 being males, and one case where the sex was unknown. Most of the missing children were between the ages of 13 and 17.

Authorities reported that 97.2% of children (15,881) were recovered safely by the end of the year.
