There used to be a requirement to 'Book in/out' but I suspect that when we adopted the Single European Rules of the Air it got lost in the transition.

...but when operating from a strip I've carried the sheet in the aircraft - which would not be helpful if I disappeared.
Best thing to do here is just call a friend (responsible person) tell them that you intend to fly, text them the details, with the Tel. No. for D&D, (we all know what that is, don't we?) and ask them to raise the alarm if you don't call them back by an agreed time.

Or there's always the 'note under a stone' at the departure method. At least anyone investigating your disappearance might then have a chance of finding out who you were, and your intentions.
