Missing(abducted) women in NYC

My research proposal is on missing women, abducted or kidnapped. I would like to know if, how dangerous a neighborhood is, higher crime rate has anything to do with women going missing.Does the fact that a neighborhood have less police presence or video camera around businesses let kidnappers get away with committing a crime. Does race make one more likely to be abducted. Height and also weight has a huge impact on how an assailant chooses his victim.   I would like to narrow my research down to NYC or preferably The Bronx. The time frame within the last five years. Why are some women more vulnerable to being abducted than others. How are these women being kidnapped, are they all being dragged into a car,or taken from their home. Last year more than 13,000 people were reported missing in NYC, Of these 13,000, how many were women, how many were found alive or how many were found dead. Is there any suspects and are the suspects familiar with the missing person or a stranger. Majority of these people are found within hours. Who is involved in the search and or rescue. How much money is spent in the manpower for the search team. Statistically speaking, is there an age range that makes certain type of women more vulnerable to being kidnapped. Has the rate of this specific crime gone up or down within the last five years and also does climate have a role, for example during the winter months in NYC, the weather outside drops significantly, making more people stay indoors, therefore less people in the streets to witness any crime being committed.
