March For The Missing

The family, friends and supporters of people missing people are marching through London today to highlight the lack of support available to them, the ones left wondering what's happened to their loved, vanished ones.

The charity Missing People provides some support and advice and maintains a register of missing people. Importantly, they recognise the right of people to go missing and stay missing. But the organisers of today's march, mothers searching for lost sons, say there is a real need for emotional and practical support for families searching for lost relatives and stuck in the limbo of not knowing what's happened to them. They are marching on Downing Street to campaign for the government to provide this, in the shape of a support network or Missing Persons Bill.

A single daffodil is to be lain remembrance of those missing.
