Missing Persons Resources
There are quite a number of
resources that you can use to look for missing people. These resources are
mainly sites that you can use from reporting the person (missing person’s report) to searching for the person. I
hope this guide on missing person’s resources will be helpful to you.
You can check out the whole
missing persons series here to read more about missing persons list, missing persons report etc.
The Nation’s Missing Children Organization
One of the places that you can use is The Nation’s Missing
Children Organization (NMCO) which only started accepting adult cases in 1995. This organization works with
government entities offering services for missing adults and their families. It is located in Phoenix, AZ and you
can get hold of them on (800) 690-3463.
The National Center for Missing adults
This organization helps in tracking missing adults. It was
formed as a response to the disappearance of a former college student who disappeared without a trace
in 1997 (23 June). There were not many resources available to
search for her. In 2005, the federal funding for the center ran out, but it has continued with volunteer
The first national clearinghouse for missing
This center is a central storehouse of info that is available
to the public, medical examiners, support groups and the law enforcement. They also offer technical assistance and
support to families dealing with the loss of a missing person.
The National Missing Person’s Database
This is a powerful resource that helps family members, medical
examiners, law enforcements and other members of the community (justice community) enter information about a
missing person. Even though this place has been around for a short time, it helps
provide links together with contact information to authorities on
local and state level for all the fifty states. Here you can add new missing people with their details and
photographs. You can also do a quick missing person’s search.
These are some of the missing person’s resources that you can
use. Before you start using these resources, note that; if you have an argument with your kid and they storm out
because they are angry, they are not missing and thus you can’t report them missing but you can go after them and talk to them.
If you are a runaway juvenile’s legal guardian and you know their whereabouts, they are not missing, you just
have to find a way to talk to them to come back home. There are resources available that you can use for
these certain situations.
You can find more resources by simply Googling them but we suggest you take the time to
