Thousands of people are reported missing each year, yet very little is known about who they are, why they disappear and what happens to them. Researchers at the
University of York have completed the most extensive study of going missing in the UK. Drawing on case records on nearly 2000 adults and young people reported to
the National Missing Persons Helpline and questionnaires completed by 114 formerly missing people, this is the first study to unravel the meaning of going missing
across the entire spectrum of missing persons cases.
