Submitting a Missing Person Alert

We have made it easier for you to get a missing person alert on our page. There is no charge for this but first you must:

1. Call the police and file a report. You do NOT have to wait 24 hours. The police need to have a missing person report filed before we will post a missing person alert on our website, app, and social media pages. If the police tell you they can't file a missing report, then ask them to please do a well-being check on the person and make sure to give the police the address where the person lives and the reason for the well being check.

2. Once a police report has been filed, please provide all the information below and email it to Please include all the following information:

City/state last seen
Date/time last seen
Hair color
Eye color
Clothes last seen wearing
Anything unusual (requires medication, has been depressed lately, etc.)
Police where report was filed
Police phone number
If a vehicle was used, color, year, make, and model
At least one good, recent picture

Again, email the completed information from above to

3. We will review your submission and if you have contacted the police and filed a missing person report, we can create the alert. Please watch your email for any directions we might give you after posting it.

4. Please understand we are not the police. They have many more resources than we do. We are offering the ability to create an alert to help spread the word of your missing person's disappearance.

5. If the person you are reporting is 18 years or younger, you need to immediately call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 to file a report. They are the world's largest and best organization in helping find missing children. They do not charge and will truly help you.

6. If you have not done so, please call the local jail or hospital. Sometimes, a missing person might be in a jail or hospital and does not have the ability to call. You need to call the the jail or hospital and be sure to ask for the missing person by name. Don't ask "Is John Doe there?" Instead ask, "Can I speak with John Doe, please?" Because of HIPAA laws, a hospital will not tell you that a particular patient is in the hospital if you ask them. Instead, you have to ask in a way that makes it appear that you already know the missing person is in the hospital.

As always, if you have any questions, you can contact us at
