Action to co-ordinate efforts to trace young people who have gone missing or have run away from home is being boosted by a new trial project.
Gwent Police are joining forces with agencies including social workers and health staff as the scheme is unveiled.
Officers say they get around 300 reports of missing children every month who they fear are at risk of harm.
