About Us

A lifeline when someone disappears

We are an independent charity funded by donations.

We search for missing people on behalf of the friends and family left behind and provide specialised support to ease their heartache and confusion. Our free, confidential helpline is available 24 hours a day by phone, text and email to support missing children and adults, and their loved ones.

On these pages you can find out where it all began, who is involved and where the charity Missing People is going in the future.

Give time

Use the Search Directory to find out who is missing in your area or volunteer for Missing People.

Give socially

Join the Search by following us on Facebook or Twitter. The more people who share our missing people appeals with friends online, the more chance we have of finding them.
