Missing person cases are unfortunately not uncommon, and they can happen for various reasons, such as abduction or other criminal activities, running away, mental health issues, or accidents. When someone goes missing, it can be a traumatic and stressful experience for their loved ones, and it’s essential to report the case to the authorities as soon as possible.

They collaborate with law enforcement agencies, media outlets, and volunteers to disseminate information about missing persons, share their photos and descriptions, and provide support to their families.
SOS Desaparecidos also runs a hotline (+34 649 952 957) and a website where people can report missing persons or provide information on ongoing cases.
