AN IMPRESSIVE array of senior legal figures has rallied to the banner of a cash-strapped charity dedicated to finding missing people.Nine lawyer members of the House of Lords have signed up as vice-patrons of a new national appeal being launched by the National Missing Persons Helpline, established three years ago.Among them are Vice-Chancellor Sir Richard Scott, family division president Sir Stephen Brown, Lord Woolf, Lord Mishcon and Lord Alexander of Weedon.The charity, which relies on voluntary donations, says it has become a victim of its own success as more and more people and organisations turn to it for help.Its profile was raised during the Frederick and Rosemary West multiple-murder case in Gloucester when it was able to use its database to identify four of the victims.But the charity also plays the more positive role of reuniting families.A spokesman said a shortfall in the charity's funds had grown with its reputation.He added: "Reuniting families is just one of the interests the profession and the charity have in common. So are charitable legacies."The NMPH is anxious to gain a place in the thoughts of those considering charitable bequests, covenants and gifts, and to those advising them on where to commit their funds."
