This year's campaign is commemorating 30 years and is highlighting the impact on family and friends following the disappearance of a loved one.

The police are asking the public to keep an eye out around their city and on social media.

National Missing Persons Week (NMPW) is an annual event held during the first week of August which aims to raise awareness of the significant issues associated with missing persons, as well as helping to reduce the incidence and impact of missing persons in Australia.

NMPW originated in 1988 in Townsville following the disappearance of Queensland resident, Tony Jones, in 1982. The inaugural week took place with a memorial service, where the Mayor of Townsville planted a tree in commemoration of Mr Jones.

To commence the week, the NMPCC have also launched a short film displaying the effects of a missing loved one on family left behind.

The film aims to provide insight into the emotional struggle, the not knowing and the waiting for answers that families experience when a loved one is missing.
