Missing Persons

The Tasmania Police Missing Persons Unit has responsibility for the statewide overview, coordination and analysis of information in relation to missing persons.

A missing person is anyone reported missing to police, whose whereabouts are unknown, and where there are concerns for the safety or welfare of that person.

To report a missing person call 131 444 or contact your nearest police station.

When a person is reported missing, police have the responsibility to:

  • Locate the missing person as expediently as possible in order to minimise trauma to the person and family, and
  • Identify any suspicious circumstances.

The Missing Persons Unit is situated within the State Intelligence Service of Tasmania Police and can be contacted by:
