National Missing Persons Week’s theme this year is ‘youth’ and the prevention of young people from going missing.
This week police are asking people to ‘Take the time to let somebody know,’ to highlight the importance of young people, as well as the broader community, to let somebody know where you are and when you will return.
Each year approximately 35,000 people are reported missing in Australia, this is equivalent to one person every 15 minutes.
