Where do people go if they are reported as missing?

What happens on missing journeys?

A new research project run from Glasgow University, in collaboration with Dundee University and Police Scotland, and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council has launched ten ‘stories of missing experience’ which answers these questions. The stories exist as awareness-raising and learning resources intended to prompt new conversations about missing experience.  They are being used in police training and education programmes with the aim of producing more sensitive and empathetic police practice. Missing People will also use them as learning resources in their work with families.

The stories are comprised of a mix of interview material from 45 people’s accounts of being reported as missing, and names and places have been changed to protect identities.
