This study was based on an analysis of 250 disappearances closed by Missing People during 2006 and 2007, in which the missing person died. Secondary information sources were scrutinised, including the Missing People case files and, in some cases, death certificates and internet sources. The findings are divided between disappearances initially dealt with solely by the charity (non-police cases) and those initially investigated by the police. The report highlights the relative proportion of people who die because of suicide, accidents, homicide and natural causes; and examines the implications for both Missing People and other agencies.
