People go missing all the time. Some through disorientation, some through choice, and others not! However, thankfully the majority of missing persons are usually found.
From various television series, we are accustomed to hearing that you cannot report a person missing within the first 24 hours. However, according to the National Centre for the Disappeared (CNEDS), this is not true. Furthermore, they state, “the report must be made as quickly as possible from the moment a person goes missing”.
Contact the police immediately
If you believe someone to be missing and have checked their home address in case they have had an accident and can´t move, then contact the police immediately. If you contact them personally, the report should be made at the police station closest to where the missing person resides. You can also call the following numbers:
- Guardia Civil: 062
- National Police: 091
