Each year 35,000 people are reported missing in Australia. While 95 percent of people are found within a short period of time, there remains approximately 1,600 long term missing persons; those who have been missing for more than six months.
The NMPCC profiles missing person's cases that have been provided by the State and Territory police. It is the role of the police services in each State and Territory to investigate reported cases in their jurisdiction.
Please note: the cases listed do not represent every missing person in Australia that has been reported to police. The NMPCC is only able to profile cases where there has been an authority granted for public display.
