• 35,000 people are reported missing each year in Australia – one person every 15 minutes.
• In 2011, over 12 000 people were reported missing to police in NSW. Of those people, 46 remain missing.
• From the start of 2010 to May 2012, 17,467 juveniles (that is young people 17 years or under) were reported missing in NSW. Of this, 60% were female and 40% male.
• The most common age for young people to go missing is 14 years of age.
• The average time a young person goes missing before they are found in NSW is 4.3 days. Young males tend to go missing for a slightly long time than females, while Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander (ATSI) young people tend to go missing for a longer time (6 days) compared to non-ATSI young people.
• It’s important to remember to let your family or friends know when your plans change, so they know you are safe and well.
• It’s not a crime to go missing. People go missing for many different reasons: conflicts within families and other relationships, mental illness or through suspicious circumstances.
• If a person is reported missing to police, enquires into their whereabouts will be made by police. Police or a person in authority have to sight the person, even if they have returned home, after they have been reported missing to ensure that they are safe and well. They will not be in any trouble and the person’s welfare is the main concern.
• Do not wait 24 hours to report someone is missing if there are fears for their safety and their location is unknown.
• This is an issue that has the potential to affect everyone irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, culture, profession or educational background.
• There are currently more than 600 people listed as long-term missing in NSW, that is, missing for more than 12 months.
• As an organisation, the NSW Police Force is continually investigating and exploring opportunities to help reunite missing people with their loved ones.
• Don’t assume that someone else has reported a person missing.
The NSW Police Force would like to thank the Outdoor Media Association for their assistance with Missing Persons Week 2012.
The Outdoor Media Association has kindly donated $100,000 worth of advertising space that has allowed Missing Persons Week to be advertised across 348 sites and 50 taxi backs across NSW.
Police would also like to thank the Westfield Group who promoted Missing Persons Week 2012 throughout their shopping centres and NSW Police Force Facebook and Twitter followers for sharing and ‘re-tweeting’ our messages.
It is important for people to be aware that being reported missing is not a crime and that it is the aim of the NSW Police to ascertain if the missing person is safe and well.
