Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contribution

Abstract

In the UK, an average of 891 missing person incidents are reported to the police daily (UK Missing Persons Unit, 2021). Although most missing persons are located safely within 48 hours, there were 955 fatal outcomes and over 6,500 non-fatal harm outcomes in 2019/2020 (UK Missing Persons Unit, 2021). Missing person investigations are incredibly resource intensive, with an estimated cost of over £700 million per year (Shalev Greene & Pakes, 2014).
