Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I originally wrote about Mirabelle and Summer, I used as a working title, Have you Seen my Daughter? because I thought the book I was writing would only be about Mirabelle's search for Summer. As I wrote, I realised Mirabelle had so much more to do. In setting up her contacts among the homeless on the streets of Edinburgh, she stumbled on others who had been reported missing from home. As they were reunited with their loved ones, Mirabelle's reputation grew and spread. People started to seek out her services and she found herself thrust into the role of running an unofficial missing persons agency. She became a Reluctant Detective of sorts and a series was born.
While doing research for the series, I was shocked to learn the figures.
Approximately 2,300 Americans are reported missing--every day.
This includes both children and adults, but does not include Americans who have vanished in other countries, individuals who disappear and are never reported, or the homeless and their children.
That's somewhere around 900,000+ a year.
In Britain alone, an estimated 250,000 people go missing every year. Many of those cases are resolved by police; just 2,500 people remain untraced more than a year after they disappear, some of them stay missing long after a year, ten, twenty, thirty years and more.
But that can still mean those who are contacted by police or other authorities do not return home and that families are not told if their loved one is alive or safe.
A closed case simply means the police are confident that no crime took place.
And how many of these missing people are children or young teenagers?
It is estimated that at least 8 million children worldwide go missing each year.
800,000 children in the U.S; 40,000 children in Brazil; 50,500 in Canada; 39,000 in France; 100,000 in Germany; and 45,000 in Mexico; 230,000 in the U.K.
And in most of the developing world--including Africa, Asia, and Latin America--no one is counting missing children.
