My missing story: Rachel Pickthall



Missing is an issue that affects around a million people each year in the UK. It’s hard, when you are affected, to feel like you are being active in the search to bring them home. Family members like Rachel, whose brother is currently missing, do all that they can to raise awareness and keep the appeals of their loved one at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

Someone is reported missing every 90 seconds in the UK. The Missing Blog aims to give a voice to all those affected by this issue.

Written by families and friends of missing people, supporters working to raise awareness of the cause, and volunteers and staff at the charity Missing People, we hope that this blog will offer a window into the issue of missing.

The charity Missing People is a lifeline when someone disappears. To find out more about Missing People and ways that you can support the charity visit www.missingpeople.org.uk.

Call or text the charity Missing People for free on 116 000, 24/7 if you or anyone you know is affected by a disappearance.
