Family Tree

What is the Family Tree?

Our unique Missing People Family Tree is displayed in the reception at our head office in East Sheen, London. Anyone affected by a disappearance is invited to commemorate their missing loved one with a regular gift, which will be recognised with a leaf on the tree. Each leaf will be inscribed with the name and/or a message to a missing loved one.

When you are missing someone, you may be looking for a way to keep their memory near and alive. Our tree is just one way to commemorate a loved one. All funds raised will help us to continue to offer a helpline to the 170,000 people who are reported missing every year, and their loved ones left behind.

Whether you choose to add a leaf to the tree or not, our team will remain here for you and your family. Our services are available for free, in confidence from 9am – 11pm on 116 000.
