On average 28 people go missing every day in NSW, most of which are found almost immediately. Less than 1% go on to become Long Term Missing Persons (LTMP).

The national definition of ‘Long Term’ is any person missing for over 90 days.

*The MPR has had an influx of historically reported Missing Persons, that is, persons that went missing some time ago and have only been reported recently. These cases are not included in the outstanding number per year but are still thoroughly investigated as a new report.

In 2022, 9,973 persons were reported missing and 10 remains as outstanding.
