MISSING PERSONS by Nicci Gerrard (Penguin, �7.99) ) ACCORDING to the charity Missing People, 140,000 children go missing in the UK each year. The charity's patron Stephen Fry wants us to retweet the appeals for missing children every 30 minutes throughout the day this Friday � which is officially Missing Children's Day � and spread the word about its new helpline number, 116 000. Perfect timing then to launch Nicci Gerrard's new novel about what happens to a regular middle-class family � these days that's three children plus two steps � when one of them, 18-yearold Johnny, mysteriously drops out of university after his first term and disappears.
