Left-Behind Families of the long-term missing, caring community members, missing persons support services, and law enforcement officers are invited to participate in this effort to help families of missing persons make connections.
Make connections that could help bring a missing person home!
If you or someone you know has been impacted by the unexpected disappearance of a loved one, Missing in Harris County Day can help you make connections with organizations dedicated to locating the missing.
You will have the opportunity to complete the 3-step process for filing a missing persons report, and learn the next steps that you can take.
Please bring the following if
you are searching for a missing loved one:
– Your photo ID
– Photos of the missing person – helpful photos will include the person photographed with any identifying features, such as tattoos or birthmarks, or personal items, such as favorite earrings
– Two of the missing person’s closely related family members from the mother’s side (if possible) for the voluntary submission of DNA
– X-rays, dental or medical records, police reports or other identifying documents that can be scanned and placed on file
– Families and friends are welcome to wear memorial t-shirts, bring posters or any literature to display and commemorate their missing loved one (any literature or photos left behind will not be returned)
– You are invited to download and complete the Missing Person Comprehensive Case Form (to the best of your ability) to bring to Missing in Harris County Day. This will save you time as you move from station to station to ensure all partners have the correct information. If you are unable to attend, please use this resource for your records.
Yellow wristbands will be provided to all family members and friends at the Welcome Table
to commemorate the missing in Harris County.
