Separated and missing migrants: Member States approaches to prevent family separation and search mechanisms for missing migrants (2021)

The Inform maps the approaches of Member States to prevent third-country nationals being separated from their families in three different scenarios: i) when they first come into contact with authorities; ii) during transfers from one facility to another; and iii) during their stay in a Member State. The Inform also reports on how Member States treat the issue of third-country nationals going missing, including existing procedures to report and search for a third-country national reported missing. The Inform considers the situation of third-country nationals who are separated from their families or go missing involuntarily. The issue of unaccompanied minors going missing is not addressed, as it was analysed in another Inform.
