When a relative or friend goes missing abroad it can be very distressing and you may feel at a loss as to what to do about it. This leaflet explains what practical help our consular staff can offer you, what you may wish to do yourself, and where you can go for additional help.
The first few hours in a missing person's search are often referred to as 'The Golden Hours'. In this time quite often the missing person is found, and there are a number of steps you can take initially yourself. If at any point in this list you feel unable to carry on or need help, advice or just someone to make some calls for you then just call our Operations Team. Missing Abroad is the first point of contact for families suddenly confronted with the unthinkable, providing access to both knowledge and logistical support to ensure that every effort can be made to find the person as quickly as possible.
