The Missing Persons course will develop your skills and knowledge in order to identify the actions that should be taken when someone goes missing and to implement strategies in order to reduce missing episodes.
This course is suitable for any individual who is working in a setting with children or adults, where there is a possibility that they will go missing.
Did you know?
How many people go missing each year?
Most of the people who are reported missing may be experiencing some kind of vulnerability or risk. This can be exacerbated by being missing, particularly where someone goes missing more than once.
Research shows that police data is likely to be a significant underestimate. There are limitations to the National Crime Agency data, including differing recording practices and incomplete data, and some people will not be reported missing to the police at all. Research suggests that as many as 7 in 10 children are not reported to the police when they go missing.
Why do children go missing?
This course has been created and delivered by Milly Wildish, a child protection specialist who has worked in criminal and education settings. Milly is a national safeguarding panel member and is currently engaged in a large-scale independent investigation, into current and historical allegations of child abuse.
