National Missing Persons Week 2018
National Missing Persons Week
29 July - 4 August 2018
National Missing Persons Week is an annual event to raise community awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons.

Communication plays a vital role in preventing young people from going missing and potentially finding them once they have become a missing person.
