Process of Tracing a Missing Person
If someone goes missing, the process is as follows; You make a report to a police station where a police officer records your complaint.
You are then required to forward and follow it up to a police station with an investigator from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
If it is a high-profile case then it will get priority, and the digital and physical search will begin immediately.
In case the duration of the missing person is long, most families supplement by either searching for the person themselves or even hiring private investigators.
A search of morgues is a common go-to solution, but it is often based on the hope that if the person has passed on, they would be in the specific morgues the search party is looking into.
