Missing Persons Day - 2/12/15

Sergeant Jim Molloy was in studio to announce the launch of National Missing Persons Day by The Minister for Justice and Equality, Frances Fitzgerald T.D. which will take place on Wednesday 2nd December, 2015 at Farmleigh House, Dublin.

Speaking on the day will be the Minster, the Garda Commissioner, as well as representatives of families of those who have gone missing. 

The Day presents an opportunity to commemorate those who have gone missing and acknowledge the difficulties experienced by their families and friends.  On average 8,000 missing persons reports are made to An Garda Síochána each year and for each of those individuals there is a network of family and friends who are forever impacted by those days, weeks, months or years.  The Day will also allow for recognition of the progress which has been made in missing persons’ investigations over the course of the year.

It is important to recognise the invaluable contribution and commitment of An Garda Síochána, the state agencies and voluntary groups working diligently in our communities to highlight the issues and impacts surrounding people who go missing.
