Every year in Australia, 30,000 people are reported missing. While most individuals are found within a short amount of time, approximately 1,600 missing persons cases remain missing for more than 3 months. Come Home
is a delicate book containing Missing Persons articles extracted from The Sydney Morning Herald, between 1995-2015. The articles are chronologically ordered, starting with the most recent.
As one flips through the pages, the article slowly fades away, just like the hope that dwindles with every passing day. Only the darker words ‘come’ and ‘home’ resonate through the pages, whispering, crying. For the people involved, each day can feel like a hopeless eternity as they soon come to realise that their loved ones are never coming home.
