The UK charity Missing People is to launch an aftercare scheme in Wales, to help families reunited with their loved ones. Wales has a population of under four million but a growing number of people go missing there each year - 14,500 in the year to 2013 (latest figure).

It will be helped by Big Lottery Fund Wales and will launch in September.

Missing People aftercare co-ordinator Shane Hemsley said: "You think when people come back it's all joy but that's not always the case.

"All of the issues around going missing - they do come to the surface."
