“With our global reach, and with an audience of well-travelled professionals from all sectors of the travel industry, a partnership with Missing People
made total sense,” said TravelMole Editor in Chief Bev Fearis.
“We are ideally placed to share their appeals across the world through our online newswires. The charity does incredible work in reuniting people with their loved ones, and we are immensely proud to be supporting their efforts.”
According to Missing People somebody is reporting as missing every 90 seconds in the UK. The charity helps locate those who are missing and support their families where the wait for the return of their loved one can take years.
The charity offers a mobile phone text service for advice and support.
Alex Livingstone, Missing People’s Corporate Partnerships Manager, added that the partnership allows “us to reach a new audience, sharing our appeals to communities across the world. We look forward to working with them.”
