The Guardianship (Missing Persons) Act 2017 makes provision for managing the property and affairs of missing persons. For the purposes of the Act, a person is 'missing'2 if:
(1) he is absent from his usual place of residence3;
(2) he is absent from his usual day-to-day activities4; and
(3) the first or second condition is met5.
The first condition is met if the person's whereabouts are either not known at all, or are not known with sufficient precision to enable the person to be contacted for the purposes of decisions relating to his property and financial affairs
