The factsheets in this series have been written for the families and friends of missing persons. They provide advice on many aspects of 'missing', including what to expect during the police investigation, what to do if someone is missing abroad and how to deal with the more long term issues of someone going missing, such as how to deal with their financial affairs.

We have removed our factsheet on presumption of death and a guide to coroners. For further information on these, please visit Presumption of Death in England and Wales - Missing PeoplePresumption of Death in Scotland - Missing PeoplePresumption of Death in Northern Ireland - Missing People and Guide to coroner services - GOV.UK (

These factsheets will be available in Welsh in the near future.
