If a Child Goes Missing
If you are concerned that a child in your care is missing, you must attempt to make contact with the last known person to have seen them, such as a teacher or friends. If you cannot locate the child within a short period of time, you need to contact the child's Caseworker or the Central Intake Team. If the call is out of business hours, the service will advise you on the most appropriate course of action, which may include contacting NT Police for assistance.
