Though much of the guidance and help we provide is applicable to any missing person case, whether in the UK or abroad, there are some aspects which are different when a person goes missing abroad.
The guidance sheet below is designed to deal with the specific issues that may arise when a loved one goes missing outside of the UK and gives details of the specific agencies that should be contacted in this instance.
This guidance was produced in partnership with the charity Missing Abroad.Download 'What to do if someone goes missing abroad' guidance sheet
