This blog post was written by Holly Christie, Archivist Volunteer at Missing People
This week is my one-year anniversary as a volunteer at Missing People, it’s been a fantastic year and I feel that I have achieved so much and made an impact, even in my small way.

Last April I signed up to become a volunteer Archivist for Missing People. My day job doesn’t really have many clean cut starts and ends, work is always ongoing. I liked the idea of volunteering my time on something that is completely different to what I do every day. Archiving gives me a sense of satisfaction when after my four hour shift I have a pile of cases that have been completed and I can now shred. Job done!

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 www.missingpeople.org.uk.

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