National Missing Persons Week is August 2 to 8 and The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is calling on the public to help solve long term missing persons’ investigations, as part of a digital marketing campaign.
The initiative – titled ‘I’ll see you later’ – has been developed by the AFP’s National Missing Persons Coordination Centre (NMPCC) and includes a series of short videos which describes the emotions felt by the families of long-term missing people.
NMPCC Coordinator Jodie McEwan said she hopes the initiative gives both families and investigators answers to long-held questions, as well as provide the community with insight into the unresolved grief and loss felt by the loved ones of missing persons.
“In telling the stories of these missing people via social media, outdoor advertising spaces and traditional media, we hope to draw out new leads and piece together these sad and enduring puzzles,” Ms McEwan said.
One of the people that the AFP is hoping to find is Kathleen O’Shea.
Kathleen has been missing since Thursday, December 29, 2005. She was last seen in Atherton and her age now would be 58.
