Missing Persons Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons and runs between Sunday 31 July and Saturday 6 August 2016.

The theme of this year’s campaign is urging people to ‘Stay Connected’ and to remember that ‘Missing Persons Leave Frayed Edges’.

The campaign aims to remind members of the public of the importance of staying connected with family and friends and to ultimately enhance personal and communal support networks that assist those most at risk of going missing.

NSW Police Force would like to thank the Outdoor Media Association (OMA) for their assistance with Missing Persons Week 2016, donating advertising sites worth almost $235,000 across NSW.
