I've lost touch with someone

and am not sure what to do

Perhaps you’ve lost touch with someone you care about and are worried about them, or are wondering where they are or what happened to them.

There are lots of reasons why you might no longer be in contact like family issues, an argument, or someone simply moved away and you’ve lost track of where they are.

We've compiled information which might be useful to you if you're trying to find someone you've lost touch with.

If you need to talk anything through, you can call or text our free helpline 116 000 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We're here 24 hours a day. 

Please note: A disappearance should be reported to the police immediately if the person’s safety is believed to be compromised. Call 999 if you believe someone is at risk or in danger or harm.


Missing People's Lost Contact Service is currently under review so we are not taking any more new cases.  We may re-instate the same or an enhanced service in late 2018.
