Finding out that someone you know has gone missing is a serious matter. Whether it is a friend or family member, it is vital to understand that there are clear actions you can take to help find them again. This guide will help you understand the first steps to locating people in the UK.
Whether or not you think the missing person might be in danger, it is always best to contact the police as soon as you think they have gone missing.
Police and other authorities can help spread the word and raise awareness of the situation, but there is only so much they can do, especially if the missing person is an adult.
Contact friends and family
You will want to get in touch with friends and family to explain the matter and get the word out. Not only will this give you support when searching for the missing person, but you may find the missing person is in the presence of someone you contact.
Cover all bases and get in touch with friends of the missing person, even if you do not know them very well.
Spread the word
With the help and support of friends and family, you will want to spread the word as much as possible. Start by creating a social media post, including a picture and contact information if someone spots them.
If the search continues over the next few days, you may want to create posters to hang up around the neighbourhood and areas that the missing person frequently visits.
