Gardai say over 300 children are currently missing in Ireland

According to Gardai, there are now 317 children in Ireland who are 17 years of age or younger who are missing, reports The Mirror.

They are one of the 834 individuals who have an official “missing” status. The numbers are as of last November 30.

The Child and Family Agency (TUSLA), which handles reports of missing children from foster care, and the Gardai have now established a collaborative protocol, according to the former.

Immediately upon the occurrence being reported to the police, a missing person inquiry is launched.

The Gardai said in a statement: “It should be noted that all Missing Person investigations remain open until that missing person is located. An Garda Siochana can confirm that as of 30th November, 2023 there were 834 people reported as missing,” reports The Mirror.

“Of the 834 missing persons, 317 of these were aged 17 or younger at the time they were reported missing. These figures relate to all open missing person incidents regardless of when the incident occurred. Figures are operational and subject to change,” they added, reports The Mirror.
