At Risk of Going Missing Form

Have you heard of the At Risk of Going Missing form?

The At Risk of Going Missing Form provides detailed information about a person’s background and history, such as routes frequented, general health information, places they like to go, to help police to identify priority areas to search, often speeding up the time taken to find them, particularly if the person is vulnerable.

The form allows all this information to be documented in advance and kept in a safe place by families and carers so they can be found quickly if a loved one is reported missing.

The Sunflower Centre has copies of this form or alternatively follow the link.
