A loved one is missing and I need support

We know this can be a difficult, uncertain and traumatic time

If someone you know is missing, we are here to support you for as long as it takes.

We have been supporting the families and friends of missing people for more than 20 years. Many of these families have told us that it is difficult to find someone to talk to who understands, and that often people are shocked or don’t know what to say when they tell them that a loved one is missing.

It can feel like other people seem to stop caring after some time has passed. Missing People will never stop caring. We are here to remember your loved one and to hold your hand for as long as the journey takes.

Call, text or email 116 000

Missing People's helpline is free, and availble 24/7. If a friend or relative has gone missing and you need support and advice call or text 116 000 or email 116000@missingpeople.org.uk.
