Forget-Me-Not month

Each year in May we hold a series of events and activities around the country to help bring vulnerable missing adults and children home to their loved ones.

Supporters can get behind Missing People by Tweeting, running, walking and drinking tea to help those affected by a disappearance.

This year, we also launched Child Rescue Alert and are calling on the general public to sign up and help the search for missing children.

Forget-Me-Not month 2014 was supported by a huge number of organisations making it an incredible year for Missing People, its staff, volunteers and supporters.

A huge thank you to the following organisations for supporting Forget-Me-Not month 2014.


Missing People is proud to partner with:

Get involved with The Big Tweet 2015

A staggering 140,000 children go missing in the UK every year.

Every year on International Missing Children’s Day (25 May), we harness the power of Twitter to help find missing children via The Big Tweet for Missing Children.

The public retweet our appeals for missing children, which are issued every 30 minutes for 24 hours.

Our Patron Stephen Fry supported the event once again in 2014 - here's what he said before the event:

"Do you know what you are going to be doing on 25 May? I do. I am going to be throwing my weight behind the charity Missing People’s ‘Big Tweet for Missing Children’ for the fourth year running.

"It is a very simple concept and there is simply no excuse not to get involved. Every half hour for 24 hours throughout International Missing Children’s Day, the charity will be posting Twitter appeals with the aim of finding missing children.

"By retweeting these appeals, we can all help extend the platform that might bring those children home. Circulating the details of these children through the social media site is such a simple, yet incredibly effective way to give the appeals as much coverage as possible.

"I was so impressed by how the world of Twitter responded last year – an incredible 58,000 retweets in one day. The result? Two missing children were found. Invaluable."
