They range from a Waterlooville schoolgirl to a Gosport pensioner - and all have gone missing without trace.

Their names and photographs are featured on a charity website dedicated to trying to trace the thousands of people who go missing in Britain each year.

Missing People lists basic details on six people missing in Hampshire.

They include Waterlooville schoolgirl Krystal Browne, last seen on November 29, and Gosport pensioner James Stone, who was 67 when he disappeared in 1988.

We are there for them 24 hours a day, every day of the year, at the end of a phone, text or email, ready to use every means possible to search for and find their missing loved ones and to provide vital on-going support to families where the agonising wait turns into years, not just days.
