From , 3:05 pm on 6 September 2016

Following this year's International Day of the Disappeared in Bougainville, there are calls from families of The Missing for a permanent memorial.

Each year, those missing from the decade-long civil war of the 1990's are remembered on August the 30th.

A spokesperson for families of The Missing says people want more than just marking the day with memories.

Dominic Godfrey has more.
