Whether it’s losing a loved one or a job, we’ve all experienced a loss at some point in our lives. But ambiguous loss is different… meaning that we don’t know for certain if the person is alive… or dead? This “not knowing” can be torture for the families of those who have gone missing. And can be equally impactful to those working in the justice system trying to bring the perpetrators to justice and to support the families who need answers.
