For more than two years, investigators in Cumberland County have been baffled by the disappearance of then-5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez from a park in Bridgeton.

Yet she is just one of 89 people the New Jersey State Police are tracking on their Missing Persons List, a database that stretches back almost six decades.
