Ben Westwood: Poems from a Runaway

Why does a child decide to run away and disappear? What are their feelings, thoughts and fears while they are missing?

Singer, writer and ex-runaway Ben Westwood decided to share with Missing People his touching experience of going missing, leaving his native Staffordshire for London. He recalls the worries that made him run away from home, the dangers encountered when living on the streets and his final return home also in his self-published book "Poems from a Runaway".

Around 250,000 people go missing in the UK each year. 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
