Australian Police Services

If someone you know is missing and you have serious concerns for their safety and welfare please notify your local police station immediately. There is no need to wait 24-48 hours.

Australian police are committed to undertaking thorough and extensive investigations where there are serious concerns for a missing person. For more information or advice about police response to missing person cases please contact the National Missing Persons Unit or the Police Missing Persons Unit in your State/Territory.


MPUs conduct searches for missing people and carry out associated investigations. Only one missing persons’ report should be filed with police in your State or Territory. Searches will then be coordinated on a national basis as required.

The Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s mission is "Taking care of the little things". The Better Buddies Program teaches children to care about the other children around them. The Better Buddies Program introduces and enhances primary schools’ Buddy systems. It delivers a very positive and effective anti-bullying, anti-violence message. We believe this will lead to reduced violence in our community
