Advice tool

I'd like to report a sighting of a missing person.

If your sighting is of a missing person whom you do not consider to be in immediate danger, please contact us by calling our non-emergency number, 101.

Please have the following information available if possible:

  • Date and time of when you saw them
  • Location of where you saw them
  • Description of what they were wearing
