Search help

The National Missing Persons Coordination Centre website lists many profiles of long term missing persons.

Site search tips

You can leave the search field blank to return all missing persons profiles listed on the national register. Alternatively if you would like to search the site for a specific missing person or persons who match a specific description consider these tips.

  • The search tool on this site will search for entered words across all missing persons profiles, unless the 'Search website' button is pressed, where all pages on the site will be included.
  • Avoid using common terms like the word ‘missing’ which will appear on most pages.

Names

  • If you are searching for a specific name consider multiple searches using variations of spelling and/or similar names (Ann, Anne, Anna, Annie).
  • Instead of searching a person’s first and last names, use only one name (surname or given name) in the search field. Our search will only return items that match all included words.
  • Google has more powerful search tools (wildcards etc.) consider using google search and limiting results to the missing persons site using “site:missingpersons.gov.au”

If you are looking for missing persons cases which match a specific description, consider leaving the search field blank and then limiting the results via the filters in the search results.
