Each year, thousands of Australians are reported missing to police. Most return home, unharmed, after a short period: but not all found nor are all those who are located unharmed. MISSING PERSONS provides a wide range of information concerning this little recognised human problem. It presents a range of data concerning numbers of persons reported missing together with advice and information of value to families and friends, as well as those who have the task of tracing missing persons.
