What should I do when someone goes missing?

  • DO NOT¬†wait 24 hours before reporting the person missing.
  • Try to not panic
  • Gather the following information and call 911:
    • Any medical or developmental issues they may have
    • Basic Clothing Description
    • Point Last Seen
    • Time Last Seen
  • Locate a picture of the family member while waiting for the police to arrive
  • Do not touch any clothing that they may have worn recently
  • Stay off the phone in case the person tries to call ¬†
  • Create a list of friends and contact info
    • In the event of a child, call friends parts, schools and other locations child may frequent
  • If an Alzheimers Patient, create a list of places he or she may have lived in the past
  • Create a post on social media
    • We suggest a “page” on facebook VS a Post. Pages are easier to share and ultimately easier to delete or remove information when someone is located. You can also target a specific area with an ad from the page.
