The Guide has ideas, advice, examples, checklists, contact databases, and templates to give direction to families and friends looking for a loved one. Though it includes information for longer term cases too, this is the first port of call. See the Guide here.

We’re acutely aware of the impact having a loved one go missing can have on individuals, families, communities, workplaces and government services.

We plan to expand upon our success with Vodafone creating policies for long term missing customers across all relevant industries.
