    I couldn't figure out where to put this.

    POLICE: Guide to finding missing persons launched

    A world-first step-by-step guide to help find missing persons has been launched online.

    Loren O'Keeffe, whose brother Daniel has been missing since 2011, today launched the Missing Persons Guide to provide practical advice to families looking for missing loved ones.

    The Missing Persons Guide draws on many of the lessons Loren learnt from her ‘Dan Come Home' Facebook campaign that reached over 30,000 people.

    The Guide offers practical guidance for the first 48-hours after someone is reported missing, right through to support for families whose loved ones have been missing long-term.

    It includes a toolkit of templates for creating missing persons posters and media releases, as well as practical advice on how best to raise awareness through the media and details of support networks.

    Designed by Loren with the help of five other families of missing persons, the Guide seeks to remedy the clear lack of support and guidance available to families in the O'Keeffe's situation.

    “There wasn't a central place that families of missing persons could go to for help and advice, or even just to talk about the experience with other families,” Loren said.

    “We simply didn't know where to start.”

    That's a great find cheese, thanks. I had a heck of a job finding the guide though, as none of the articles bothered to link to it!

    Do you know if this is it?
