June 2013

* On 19th June the Geographies of Missing People team launches research findings via a presentation and evening reception at the '1st International Conference on Missing Children and Adults: 'Working Across Borders'. Findings from the project will be delivered via multiple resources, but include a report that contains research materials that draws on 45 in-depth interviews with people reported as missing and who have returned. Also available ‘Missing People, Missing Voices: Stories of Missing Experience’, an audio and textual resource produced via the use of verbatim words of returned missing adults aimed at breaking the silence around missing experiences. These resources are available to view and download via our website, as well as Missing People and UKMPB.

* On day two of 1st International Conference on Missing Children and Adults: 'Working Across Borders' the research team both facilitated the session ‘Missing Geographies’ and presented research finding alongside invited speakers, Professor Jenny Edkins and discussant Jacqui Karn.
