Safeguarding Ireland is today supporting ‘National Missing Persons Day’, an initiative of the Department of Justice.
There are 850 missing persons in Ireland, including 40 people so far this year, and today Safeguarding Ireland encouraged people to find out more and to be aware of this issue.
The aims of the awareness raising day are to commemorate those who have gone missing and recognise the lasting trauma for their families and friends.
It is also to draw attention to open or unsolved cases with the hope that they might be solved. People are encouraged to report any information related to a missing person case to their local Garda station, or to call 1800 666 111.
There is also information on social media channels under the tag #ThinkingOfYou
