Service summary

Missing People

We are a lifeline when someone disappears. Missing People is the only charity in the UK which is dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families. Some missing people you will have heard of, but many more you won’t. For their families, life can feel like a desperate and unbearable struggle as they wait for days or even years. That’s why we are here for missing people and their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide free and confidential support by phone, text or email. Whatever you tell us at Runaway Helpline we’ll listen and offer support. Not judge or tell you what to do. It’s your call. Runaway Helpline is here if you are thinking about running away, if you have already run away, or if you have been away and come back. You can also contact us if you are worried that someone else is going to run away or if they are being treated badly or abused. Runaway Helpline has been supporting young people for many years and is run by the UK charity Missing People. Our staff and volunteers are trained professionals who want to help you through anything you are finding tough. You can call or text us, for free, 24 hours a day. The number to call is 116 000. You can also email us on 116000@missingpeople.org.uk It’s all confidential.
