Crime Stoppers Australia is again proud to support efforts by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) to solve long-term missing persons’ investigations as part of National Missing Persons Week 2020 (2-8 August 2020).
This year’s theme – ‘I’ll see you later’ – includes a series of short videos which help to describe the emotions felt by the families of long-term missing people.
It is hoped this initiative gives families and investigators answers to long-held questions, as well as provide the community with insight into the unresolved grief and loss felt by the loved ones of missing persons.
The videos reinforce that these missing people had hobbies and dreams, and continue to live in the memories of those left behind.
The following long-term missing persons will be featured in this week’s campaign:
- Laura Haworth (ACT)
- Michael Croaker (NSW)
- Daniel (Danny) Plain (NT)
- Peter English (Qld)
- Brian Cairney (SA)
- Eileen Stewart (Tas)
- Paul Wright (Vic)
- Simon Harrington (WA)
In Australia, a missing person is defined as anyone who is reported missing to police, whose whereabouts are unknown, and where there are fears for the safety or concern for the welfare of that person. A long-term missing person is someone who has been missing for more than three months.
If you have any information about a missing person you can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to www.crimestoppers.com.au
