What happens next?

Investigations will begin immediately.

A recent photograph will also be required, as will a DNA sample (this can be obtained from a toothbrush or hairbrush).

We will seek consent to search the missing person's home or bedroom. This is routine and can often provide new investigative leads.

You will also be asked to consent to publicity. We frequently use the media to make an appeal to the public for information to help us locate people. Again, this often proves fruitful.

If during the investigation you remember or find out anything that you think might help - no matter how small - let us know immediately.

Sometimes when we find an adult who has been reported missing, they ask for their location to remain a secret. If this is the case, we will check that they are safe and well but respect their wishes and not pass on information about their location to their friends and family.
