The majority of missing children and adults are vulnerable. Many go missing as a result of problems such as domestic abuse, job loss, or as a result of grooming. People may also go missing because of issues such as dementia or abduction.
Although most missing people return, they may suffer harm and exploitation during their time away; for example, missing children may become victims of child sexual exploitation.
Please note: the issues and guidance covered in this article are similar to those in missing children and adults.
