What do I do if I think I have seen a missing person?
Contact your local police department immediately. Please be observant - write down any information that may help the police. Some examples are: About the missing person: hair colour, clothing they are wearing, distinguishing characteristics About who is with the missing person: sex, hair colour, clothing, distinguishing characteristics About a vehicle: make of vehicle, model, license plate number
You should NEVER try to talk to the person as you may be putting yourself and others in danger.
Even if the person you see does not turn out to be the missing person, it is always better to be wrong than to have missed an opportunity to bring a loved one back to their family.
IF SOMEONE I KNOW IS MISSING, DO I HAVE TO WAIT TO MAKE A REPORT?
No - go to the police right away. Many people believe that there is a 24 hour waiting period before you can report someone missing. This is untrue. If you think a family member or friend is missing, and you have tried all of their friends and checked with all the hospitals in your area, please go to your nearest police station to file a missing persons report.
Where did you get your information?
A: Research. We have scoured the internet for news articles, missing posters and police reports. We have also taken information from other websites - most are listed on the links page. If you find something on the site that is untrue, please contact us and we will rectify the error.
Why are you asking for donations?
We are a not-for-profit group and rely on the generosity of the community. We ask for donations to help us run and maintain our website, as well as create and distribute pamphlets, flyers and posters so more people can become aware of how many people are missing in their community. We hope this vigilance will result in reunions with loved ones.
