We speak to adults and children every day who  are either away from home, or are thinking about leaving. Although many people feel this way, every person’s situation is different as are their reasons for wanting to go missing.

We understand that it can be very complicated and there might not always be an easy solution. You may have had relationship problems, financial worries, suffered from domestic abuse or have psychological issues or drug or alcohol dependency which you’re struggling to cope with. There could be one major issue that made you want to go missing, or a series of problems which have accumulated and left you feeling it was your only option.

There could be help available that may mean you can return home or reconnect with your loved ones and we can put you in touch with organisations that can support you. But if you know you have been reported missing and want to stop the police and/or Missing People looking for you, our highly trained helpline advisors are on hand any time, day or night, to discuss your options and help you stay safe. Talk to us, we can help.
