A man was searching for his children using Facebook. Thanks to helpful people he found them – and their mother, who had secret and protected identities. “The worst case scenario is that the woman is raped or killed, says Lotta Sonemalm, at The Swedish Association of Women’s Shelters and Young Women’s Empowerment Centres, (SKR).

The story on Facebook was very touching. A father published a photo of his missing children and asked for help finding them. And thousands helped sharing the post and finally one person recognized the children and let him know where to find them.

The missing information was that the woman was living under protection and with a new identity after leaving the man. Now he found out where she was. She was forced to move again – to a women’s shelter.

, (SKR).“The worst case scenario is that you contribute to someone being beaten, raped or killed. You have to think twice before sharing this type of searches for missing people on Facebook”, says Lotta Sonemalm, at The Swedish Association of Women’s Shelters and Young Women’s Empowerment Centres

Women who are given protected identities all live under threat.

“It can be violence in close relationships, criminal gangs that you wish to leave and women who have been subjected to honour violence”, Lotta Otterdal, at Frida Women’s Shelter told radio show P4 Extra.

Swedish police also warns against sharing posts about missing people on social media.

“If a person living under a protected identity has their whereabouts revealed it result in catastrophic consequences for the person in question,” says criminal investigator Anders Ahlqvist to magazine Dagens Juridik.
