Missing Persons

A missing person is one who is absent with no apparent reason or under circumstances which may indicate involuntary disappearance. It should be remembered that missing persons are not fugitives and often have voluntarily left home for personal reasons, of which the person making the report may be reluctant to inform the police.

Despite limited resources and the fact that many of these reports may be unfounded or unnecessary, the department cannot ignore such reports and must be prepared to respond to all missing persons reports.
