It’s not a crime to go missing, adults voluntarily go missing all the time. The charity Missing People suggest that roughly 176,000 individuals are reported missing each year, with 100,000 of these being adults. 75% of adults either return or are found within 24 hours and 5% are missing longer than a week. As of the 31st of March 2019, nearly 3000 adults were classed as “long-term missing individuals''. As Christmas 2020 is around the corner, lots of families will have an empty chair at the dinner table, a chair that for many, has been vacant for far too long. Alongside Fern from Evidence of a Crime and Madeline from Crimeatorium, I’m going to tell you about a few of their stories. Maybe one of our listeners holds the key to finding even one of these missing individuals.
