NOTES:  Any differences between this posted report and Gerry Wickstead's report are my mistakes.  

This report is based on criminal stats that have been reported, therefore the amounts are always going to be smaller than the reality as not all crimes are reported. 

Taking an extreme example "  Of the 100,000 persons reported missing each year, the overwhelming majority return or are found very quickly. Nevertheless, the RCMP estimate that, a year after being reported missing, around 4,800 people are still missing, with an average increase of around 270 new, long-term missing persons each year."  DNA Missing Persons Index (MPI) A Public Consultation Paper   It is possible that some of these missing people have been murdered and their bodies have not been found.  

On the other end of the examples nor would you, driving home after a few too many drinks, if you were not stopped for impaired driving.  No crime would be reported even if it had taken place.  -Chris
