The Home Office does not hold this data centrally. Individual police forces hold information about current missing persons incidents. Annual missing people statistics, broken down to police force level, are published by the National Crime Agency’s Missing Person’s Unit (http://missingpersons.police.uk/en/resources/downloads).
We are working with the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) to deliver a National Register of Missing Persons (NRMP) which will enable us to have a snapshot of live missing incidents across police forces in England and Wales. This will assist officers when they encounter a missing person particularly if that missing person is outside their home force area.
We are currently working towards the NRMP to be in use operationally in 2020/2021.
