Police Minister Michelle Roberts people went missing for a number of reasons and foul play was not necessarily always behind an extended absence.
“We also know that in most cases, the missing person is located within 48 hours,’’ she said.
“But for the families and friends left behind when a person goes missing for an extended period, the pain of not knowing what has happened to a loved one can be devastating.
“Every missing person is someone’s son, daughter, husband or wife, father or mother, brother or sister.
“During National Missing Persons Week, I urge everyone to reflect on those left behind when a person goes missing and to think hard about how they can help by sharing any information they may have about the missing person.
“The smallest piece of information may potentially be the key to unravelling a mystery that can lead to answers for heartbroken families or friends.
“Anyone with information should contact police as soon as possible.”
