What to do if … Your Loved One is Missing

When someone you love goes missing, please contact your local police to file a missing person report as soon as possible. Law enforcement is the single best resource in helping to locate missing persons. Even where the person has disappeared years or decades before, you can still file a missing person report.

Important information to provide is:

  1. the most recent photo(s) of your missing loved one
  2. a detailed physical description
    1. details to include are physical descriptors such as age, height, weight, hair colour, eye colour
    2. other identifying characteristics may include any tattoos, scar, birth marks or moles
  3. other pertinent information may include information about any medical conditions, physical limitations and/or medications that your loved one may be taking.

It is also helpful to think about the activities and habits of your missing loved one. Such information can be useful in suggesting routines that she or he may maintain.

Family members are invited to have their loved one’s case added here. There is no charge to do so. Please visit our Case Submission section for more information. If you require other assistance, we will do our best to provide assistance, or to refer you to those who can.

If your family member is included on the website and you wish to have it removed, please let us know at FamilyRequest@missingadults.ca.
