The current study focuses on the locations from which people are reported missing repeatedly in a one year period. Some of these locations are individual households but the majority are organisational facilities. Thus, our aim is to highlight issues surrounding the ‘duty of care’ and ‘safeguarding’ responsibilities of agencies in relation to people who go missing from organisational addresses (such as mental health establishments and children’s care homes); specifically in relation to preventing them from going missing in the first place and the responsibility of the organisations helping to locate them.
