If you are reported missing, the police can ask us to send you a text message. The message will check that you’re okay, and let you know that we’re here to talk.
It is important to know that:
The text message may have come as a surprise; we understand that. You might not want to talk to us when you get it, but remember, you can reply to us at any time.
The messages are sent using an automated system. While you are missing you may get more than one message. We can’t stop this from happening, but you shouldn’t get more than one message a day.
If you want to speak to the police about being missing, we can help you do that.
