Join Missing People and a host of celebrity tweeters this International Missing Children’s Day for The Big Tweet.

The Big Tweet for Missing Children is an online tweetathon held by Missing People every year on International Missing Children’s Day, 25 May.

For 24 hours, we'll be tweeting a different appeal for a missing child every half hour from our Twitter account - @missingpeople.

This year, working in association with Twitter UK, we'll be tweeting LIVE from Twitter HQ in London, joined by special guests throughout the day.

Take part in 2018

If you have a Twitter account, you can take part. All you have to do is follow @missingpeople or follow #TeamBigTweet on Friday 25 May and retweet as many appeals for missing children as you can. You may even get a response from one of our special guest tweeters!

Go extra for The Big Tweet by...

Every missing child is at risk of harm and the longer they are missing, the greater the danger. We want to Find Every Child and end the heartache for families desperate for news of their missing loved one.

24 children go missing in the UK every hour. That's one child every 2 minutes. They need your help.
