A Missing Person is someone whose whereabouts is unknown to the reporting party. This includes any adult, or child who may have run away, been taken involuntary or may be in need of assistance. It includes a child illegally taken, held or hidden by a parent or non-parent family member (Child Abduction - California Penal Code Sections 277-280).
There is NO waiting period for reporting a person missing. All California police and sheriffs' departments must immediately accept any report, at any time, including a report made by telephone, of a missing person, including runaways, without delay and will give priority to the handling of the report. If someone you know is missing, please contact you local law enforcement agency to file a "Missing Person Report". If you suspect foul play, or the missing person is a young child, call 911!
If you need assistance with your case, please contact: Avery & Associates Investigations at 1-844-882-8379 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
