The issue of missing persons in Australia is complex and multifaceted. Around 38,000 people are reported missing to police every year in Australia.

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.
Anyone, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or educational background, may become a missing person; however, adults are more likely to be listed as long-term missing persons.
