Abstract

This article outlines important insights into how missing people navigate space, attempt to avoid detection, and select particular places and landscapes as their ‘destinations’ while on missing journeys based on the findings of in-depth qualitative research interviews with located missing people. Such insight into the needs and responses of missing persons as they progress along their missing journey has relevance for targeted police investigations and search activities associated with all missing persons including high risk or suspicious missing person investigations
