Resources for Victims' Families
"The missing phase is an excruciating and bewildering time. Our family knows these resources to be genuine and to have integrity."
If you believe your loved one is missing, report this event
to your local police. Time is critical. You may access police in this
emergency through 911. They will want descriptions of the missing person
and clothing they were wearing.
If your missing loved one is 17 years old and younger, request that the
police initiate an Amber Alert.
If your missing loved one is an endangered senior, request that the
police initiate a Silver Alert.
Try to stay out of the missing person's room or area where they spend the
most time. Law enforcement may need scent items from these areas for
their search efforts.
Gather recent photos for Law Enforcement to aid in search effort and plan on meeting with them ASAP.
