A child goes missing in the UK every five minutes, and it is quite possible that these figures are under-reported. I find it painful to think about just how desperate you must be to want to leave home in this way, or to be a parent/guardian in this situation. Many will have gone missing over Christmas.
Today a Facebook friend shared a picture of a missing girl, who was similar in age to my own daughter and it brought it home to me….
Every parent’s worst nightmare, and my heart goes out to all involved.
