The Missing Migrants project tracks incidents involving migrants, including refugees and asylum seekers who have died or gone missing in the process of migration.

According to the website (missingmigrants.iom.int), 81 people have died trying to cross the Mediterranean from north Africa to Andalucía in 2018 and 462 deaths have been recorded in the Mediterranean region.

The Missing Migrants Project is a joint initiative of the International Organisation for Migration's (IOM) Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) and Media and Communications Division (MCD) and receives funding from the UK government through UK Aid.
