Definition of competences at EU level for the recognition of the qualifications
Let’s work together to improve investigation processes, raise awareness, and offer training to help bring missing children and adults home
Child disappearances on the rise in Europe
The number of missing children and adults per year in Europe is alarming, and a significant percentage of them remain unfound. Inadequate competencies and training programs for missing persons in EU countries along with insufficient investigation procedures have created an urgent need for improvement. The EU Parliament and Council have suggested collaboration and information sharing among relevant parties to combat this issue.
LOST2 is a continuation of LOST, a project that tackled the problem of missing people in Europe by giving targeted training and technical assistance to professionals handling such cases. LOST recognized the requirement for a global/European missing persons system and the absence of an unambiguous professional qualification framework.
