THE increasing number of missing people is a constant worry for the Police Department.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said this was especially so for young people below the age of 18.
"With the holidays just around the corner, the Fiji Police Force is requesting students to ensure their whereabouts are known to their parents or guardians at all times," she said.
The department has received 30 reports of missing people this month, 16 of them under 18. The youngest person reported missing is an 11-year-old, who had spent the night at a friend's home after failing to inform his parents.
