Report a missing person

The service offers information and advice for people who have a loved one who is missing.

If you believe that someone is missing then contact your local police station. Dial 101 and inform them you would like to make a missing persons report, alternatively you can attend your local police station. It is a common belief that you have to wait 24 hours before reporting but this is not true, you can make a report to the police as soon as you think a person is missing.

If you are extremely concerned for the welfare of the person then dial 999 and ask for the police. People who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired can text 999 although you must be registered to do so (
