Together with the Police Expert Network on Missing Persons, we have devised the Common European Approach on Missing Children and Missing Persons (CEA), a European-wide strategy supported by 4 pillars, that will help prevent children from going missing and ensure that appropriate action is taken if a child does go missing.
The CEA follows our 5-point Plan, which included 5 key points to better the protection of missing children in Europe. In 2016, A great majority of 465 Members of the European Parliament from all 28 Member States and all 9 political groups supported the 5-point Plan.
With Slovenia during their EU Council presidency, we supported their efforts to get the EU’s first Council Priority on missing persons successfully adopted.
We actively support the Spanish EU Council presidency with their great plan for an EU centre on missing persons.
