If you are concerned about a person and need to report them missing you can do this immediately. You do not have to wait 24 hours to report a person missing. You can report a person missing by phoning your local police force or by visiting your local police station. You can report to your own local police station even if the missing person lives in another part of the UK.

Details of your local force can be found online via www.police.uk/forces You can also report a person missing using the 101 non-emergency number. However, if it is an emergency and you feel that the missing person may be at risk of harm, dial 999. If you are deaf or hard of hearing you can register to text your police force. If there is any reason why speaking to the police might be difficult for you, please contact us first for support. Phone our free 24 hour helpline 116 000
