'Just let someone know'

EVERY 15 minutes, one Australian is reported missing.

Of those 35,000 people who make the list each year, 20,000 of them are under the age of 18.

Warwick police have stood up to show their support this week, being National Missing Persons Week, and crime prevention officer Constable Wendy Tamblyn said now was the time to raise awareness of the issues and impacts that surround a missing persons case.

"There are various issues associated with young people going missing including escaping from violence, bullying, drugs/alcohol abuse, depression and rebellion," Const Tamblyn said.

Const Tamblyn said it was important to let someone know where you were at all times to prevent becoming a statistic.

In other missing persons news, the whereabouts of Gail Lynch remain unknown and police have no new updates.

Accused murderer Ian Hannaford remains in police custody and will reappear in court October 29.
