Missing people

West Yorkshire Police deals with nearly 5,000 missing person calls every year 20% of which are considered to be "high-risk". The reasons why people go missing are complex and can be linked to their mental health, emotional or physical abuse, or exploitation. Every time a person goes missing, the police are put under great pressure to find them and work with partners to keep them safe. We need to work better together to tackle the root causes and prevent people from going missing in the first place, this will not only reduce the risk of harm for the individual but will also reduce the demand on our police service.
