According to the Met website, if you see a missing person, here’s what you should do:

  • search the apartment or where it was last seen

  • Check the attic, yard, shed, or garage

  • Remember that children can fit into small spaces

  • Check to see if they left a note

  • look for clues about what to do, e.g. B. have brought your passport with you or packed a bag

  • Check your phone and email for messages

  • rings with friends and family

You may also want to:

  • Keep your main phone free for incoming calls in case the missing person or the police want to call you. For example, you can use a friend’s cell phone to make outgoing calls

  • Make sure that someone is always home when you go out in case the missing person comes home


If someone has an accident and is passed out, the hospital may not know who they are and who to turn to.

You could call hospitals to see if there are any unidentified arrivals recently. Check with us first as we may have already done so.

Cooperation with the police

If you are actively looking for the missing person yourself, please let us know so we know what you are doing.

Don’t put yourself in danger

For example, let the police carry out special searches in places like mountains or water.

To help us:

  • Make notes of everything you do so you can report to the police who are working on the case. You can also write down questions you want to ask

  • Leave the missing person’s bedroom and belongings alone. Do not wash or clean anything until we have searched and collected the evidence

  • Do not touch your hairbrush or toothbrush. We may want to take a DNA sample from them in case the person goes missing for a long time

Posters and other advertising

If someone has been missing for a while, you may want to post missing posters or do some other publicity, such as on social media.
