Missing People – Message Home Helpline

< Back to directory


Missing People is dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families.  For their families, life can feel like a desperate and unbearable struggle as they wait for days or even years. That’s why they are working for missing people and their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide free and confidential support by phone, text or email.

If you’re missing and want to talk about your situation:

  • Call: Freefone 116 000

This service offers a free, confidential helpline and you can send a message home.  This helpline is here to explore your options and get you the support you need to stay safe.

They listen in confidence and support missing people and their families to explore their options and, where possible, to reconnect. For those left behind, they provide specialised support to ease the heartache and confusion and help search for their missing loved ones.


Missing People provides support for missing children, vulnerable adults and families left in limbo. They offer families of the missing specialist advice and practical support as well as searching or securing publicity.
