If one of your family members or friends is missing, the Families and Friends of Missing Persons Unit (FFMPU) can offer you support. FFMPU, which is part of the Department of Communities and Justice, works closely with both police and non-police tracing services, and co-ordinates a number of support services.
If the disappearance of your family member or friend is being investigated by the Coroner, guidance and information support is available to help you during the coronial process. FFMPU has produced ‘A guide to coronial services in NSW for families and friends of missing people’.
If a Coroner makes a finding of death in regards to a missing person, those eligible may apply for a death certificate from the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. A fact sheet titled 'Applying for a death certificate for a missing person in NSW' explains this process in more detail.
