‘A phenomenal insight… a fascinating read. I couldn’t put it down’ Jackie Malton, author of The Real Prime Suspect

Every 90 seconds in the UK, a missing person is reported to the police.

A pioneer in the field with experience spanning four decades, Charlie Hedges’ job is to work out the best way to find them. What’s going on in their life? When were they last seen?

Have they chosen to go missing or is someone else involved?

With no two cases ever the same, Charlie has been involved in some of the most high-profile reports during his career with the police and as a consultant in missing cases. From the evil of abductions and trafficking to the tragic accidents of the vulnerable, Charlie has dedicated his life to developing the ways we help not just the missing, but the families and loved ones left behind.

Unique and fascinating, Missing tells Charlie’s untold story of finding those who desperately need to be found and the cases that will never leave him.


A phenomenal insight... a fascinating read. I enjoyed the book so much, I couldn't put it down.

A fascinating insight into the world of missing persons... a must-read

This book is a reaffirmation that there are professionals out there who care. I cannot imagine the pain and suffering endured when someone you love goes missing and this book reminds us all that there are those who will move heaven and earth to find them.
