Missing People

Missing People is the only charity in the UK which is dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families. Some missing people you will have heard of, but many more you won’t. For their families, life can feel like a desperate and unbearable struggle as they wait for days or even years. That’s why we are here for missing people and their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide free and confidential support by phone, text or email.

Founded 1993
