Being a lifeline during ambiguous loss - "the most distressful of all losses”

This week Radio 4 will be repeating their award-winning drama, "Ambiguous Loss", which looks at the journey of a missing man from the perspective of both himself and his family. At Missing People we use the term "ambiguous loss" in relation to what families and loved ones may experience when their loved one is missing.

Work experience – Izzy’s blog

Work experience student Izzy spent two days with us in early June getting an insight into life at Missing People. Here she reflects on her time at our head office

For the past two days I have worked at Missing People in London. It has provided an insight into what the charity is, what they do, how they do it and how important their service is. We never think that any of what Missing People help with will affect us and my time here has made me realise that this cause is highly underappreciated because we don’t hear about it as much as we should.

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
