Gaia’s Guide

Thanks to community organising efforts led by friends and family, Gaia’s story made national headlines, hundreds of people joined the search and thousands more took action in an enormous grassroots effort to find her. Designed to help loved ones when someone goes missing, Gaia’s Guide provides step-by-step guidance on how we did it. It covers everything from how to organise a search and engage the public to dealing with the press and police and is free to download here.

“When Gaia went missing I didn’t know what to do, none of us knew what to do. We knew with public backing and attention the police would have to do something. If it wasn’t for the volunteers I think we’d still be searching. We want to offer the guide so families know what to do. When someone you love disappears it’s hard to even think straight. Hopefully Gaia’s Guide will help.”

– Maya Pope-Sutherland, Gaia’s twin sister
