People go missing for various reasons
People go missing as a result of family conflict, mental illness, financial difficulties to name a few. Many of us have felt as if we need to get away from everyone and everything and start anew. If that is the case, please at least advise your loved ones you will be going away as they may be concerned about your welfare and safety. Please don't subject your loved ones to the trauma of worrying about you. Think how you would feel if someone you cared for and loved just vanished.

So please make contact, you don't have to tell them where you are. What you can do, is visit your local police station. The police will keep your whereabouts confidential if that is your wish and you are an adult.
