> History

The first International Conference on Missing Children & Adults "Working across borders" took place between 18 to 20 June 2013 at the University of Portsmouth, in the UK. The event was organised in cooperation with CEOPMissing People and the UK Missing Persons Bureau, and brought together academics and practitioners to discuss findings related to the broader phenomenon of ‘going missing.

Delegates from different parts of the world welcomed the opportunity to learn from available research as well as from practical needs and challenges related to the day to day work of law enforcement and third sector experts. Organisers of the first conference, including The Centre for the Study of Missing Persons of the University of Portsmouth are now joining forces with Missing Children Europe in organising a second edition of the successful event.
