Alex - Services
The ‘Missing’ issue covers such a range of situations and reaches out to all people in all different background and communities. This means no two days are ever the same. I enjoy this unpredictability as it keeps all of us on our toes. You can never say that you have heard ‘it all’ as invariability, as my 8 years’ experience here has taught me, we never have!
We speak to statutory agencies such as police and social services about anyone they would like our assistance and involvement. There are the families and friends that are left with not knowing where someone they care for is or how they are doing. When this happens we are here to support them through it; even in the middle of the night which can be the time when they are most alone with their worries and thoughts. There are also then the missing people themselves, with all their separate stories, situations and reasons.
Being open and non-judgemental is a very important part of my role. We are all different and I am happy to be here to ask questions and offer what we can to people; whether that’s just for someone to listen, or offer information to gain some insight into ‘Missing’ or help people reconnect. It makes me proud to be here, to be part of this team and the whole of the Missing People organisation who work together to make everything happen and progress into the future.
