Euregion Missing Persons Pilot Project

In Europe, the border is always near. 37.5 % of European citizens live in border areas. AMBER Alert Europe wants to connect EU citizens across borders in the search for missing people.

In September 2014, AMBER Alert Europe initiated, in close cooperation with the Euregion Meuse-Rhine and the Province of Limburg (Netherlands), a pilot project for missing persons in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine. This pilot is intended to develop border protocols to ensure that when someone goes missing in a Euregion, police, media and citizens in the area are immediately informed and on the lookout. The principal goal of this pilot project is to bring endangered missing persons* home safely.

In the first trial focus will be on bringing information that is already in the public domain to the attention of press and public in the whole of the Euregion, quickly and effectively and across language and national borders.

* Endangered missing person cases are usually cases where a vulnerable person goes missing, such as a child, an elderly person or a person with a disability, or where the police has other indications that the life or health of the missing person is at serious risk.
