Reuniting missing children and adults with their families with Missing People.

Missing People

Missing People is a charity in the UK dedicated to reuniting missing children and adults with their families. For these families, life can feel like a desperate and unbearable struggle as they wait for days or even years to be reunited with their love ones. Missing People uses LexisNexis Risk Solutions technology to help families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with free and confidential support by phone, text or email.

A powerful web-based tracing and investigation facility

Through in-kind donations, Missing People has been given access to the TraceIQ tool, a powerful web-based tracing and investigation facility, to help families who have been estranged or ’grown apart’ from loved ones to get back in touch. 

Technology and Expertise

An important contribution in reuniting to families.

This technological support enables staff and volunteers at the charity to check the validity of addresses supplied by families who want to re-establish contact with a family member. The ‘lost contact’ page of Missing People’s website receives the second highest number of visitors, indicating the demand for this service.
