SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – Cyclists working for food delivery service Deliveroo will be riding around with posters of missing people on their delivery bags for the next month, as part of a joint initiative with the police to try to solve several disappearances.
Police hope the ‘ride to find’ campaign will generate tips to solve five high-profile cases and follows similar initiatives in other countries. The missing people include James Grealis, who disappeared in Breda over 10 years ago and four more recent cases.
‘Every bit of attention helps,’ Neeltje Wagenaar of the national missing person’s bureau, said. ‘The worst thing about being left behind is not knowing what has happened to someone you love.’
The campaign involves 100 delivery workers in Amsterdam, The Hague, Breda and Nijmegen. A similar campaign in Britain led to three people being found, the press statement said.
