Missing People patron Sir Trevor McDonald OBE, Fiona Phillips and actress Monica Dolan are amongst the famous faces attending a fundraising dinner and auction to launch Missing People’s FIND EVERY CHILD Appeal at London’s Corinthia Hotel London tonight (Thursday 3 November).

Launching the appeal, which is aiming to raise funds for enable Missing People to reach out to the 80,000 children who go missing in the UK every year, will be Rosalind Hodgkiss, whose 14 year old daughter Alice Gross was missing for a month before her body was tragically found, and Kate McCann, mother of missing Madeleine. 

Jo Youle, CEO of the charity Missing People said, “If every vulnerable child who went missing last year in the UK were together they would fill Wembley Stadium – twice. The number of children we are desperately searching for increased by 60 percent this year. We have the means to help far more children. However our team is absolutely stretched to capacity. If we don’t urgently raise more funds, this year alone hundreds of vulnerable children will not be found.”

The fundraising event has been made possible thanks to the support of players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, Clear Channel and Royal Mail.
