I can say the LostNMissing is an organization that helped us above and beyond. They are by far the most organized, detail oriented, and steadfast non profit that I had the pleasure of getting involved with. They just took the bull by the horns and did what needed to be done and for nothing in return. I cannot express how grateful we are that when the media, law enforcement and people let you down a total stranger walks in to lift your faith in humanity. At our lowest point in our lives Cynthia Caron came into it and gave us hope and showed us compassion in our situation. I would highly recommend their site to anyone that is in dire need of help.

The people at LostNMissing, Inc are incredibly kind and helpful. When my nephew was missing, they made a poster that i could share on facebook, helped me through the registration and then created a facebook page dedicated to finding him. They also shared the poster and page and began registering him as missing on NamUs and other reputable sited dedicated to finding missing persons. As I was sharing the facebook page, and saw my friends liking and sharing both the page and poster, I received a message that my nephew had made contact with a friend... a few hours later I spoke to him and found him to be safe and sound.

All the lovely people who work for LostNMissing were wonderfully communicative and emotionally supportive throughout.

Thank-you, with all my heart!!!

Dear Friends of the Lost and Missing Organization,


There are no words to express my family’s gratitude for the guidance and support you gave us throughout

a very painful time. Without the support of the Lost and Missing, we could not have accomplished what

we did in such a short amount of time while trying to find Vicente.

Everything you did for us is deeply appreciated. The postings to the Facebook page dedicated to Vicente,

including the beautiful video, raised awareness, were extremely informative to all viewers, and kept his

spirit alive. You did an outstanding job in your communications and in giving us strength during this

difficult time.


We cannot praise enough the Lost and Missing organization and the wonderful people I met who

are dedicating their time and resources to help families such as mine in desperate and heartbreaking

situations. Your organization brought immeasurable comfort and strength to my family.

This sad experience has raised our awareness of this organization and its miraculous power to help

families such as ours survive an unfortunate crisis. The goodness and generosity of the folks from Lost

and Missing who worked with us has brought us much peace and comfort and will remain in our hearts

forever. Thank you for holding us together.


With heartfelt gratitude,

The Mundo Family

over 30 years ago due to mental illness our mother divorced our father, left 5 children bedhind, left the state of mass and moved to california . over the years on rare occasions we heard from her for a brief time. no one has heard from her in about 15 years. the family decided to try and find out if she was still alive or had passed awary since she would be turning 76 years old this year. our search for our mother lead us to the lostnmissing organization. they guided us in the process of filing reports with the police and other organizations that would help in the search for her. they keep in frequent contact with me on updates and gave emotional support with a very difficult and emotional process. i am happy to say we did find her. alive and well. she has her own life and wants no part of ours but's that's ok. our goal was to find out if she was alive , what condition she was in, and to offer her help if she wanted it. we found her. we were told she was homeless, living from shelter to shelter but happy and at piece. she chose not to contact us. we can live with the knowledge that she is alive, well and living the life she wants. we can now move forward with our lives. we are so grateful for the assistance that lostnmissing and their partners were able to give in our quest to find our mother. thankfully yours. the wellman family.

I started the Help find Kevin Carr Jr facebook page but had no idea how to make missing posters and LostNMissing jumped right in an had one made within an hour! It was more than just made it was professionally done. I had no idea what Namus was either but they explained it and even went an added him to the registry for us! I was a blind person (in a matter of speaking) trying to navigate what to do an how to do it when someone goes missing and this nonprofit stepped right up and helped me so I could help Kevin! We didn't get the outcome we all had hoped for but if it wasn't for LostNMissing I don't think we would have gotten any where near done the things we did for Kevin! Thanks again LostNMissing you all are amazing an a asset to so many! God Bless

On September 17th 2014 my sister went missing untill November 4th 2014.She was last seen in California and we all live in Utah. During this time we were extremely hopeless,not knowing how to find her. The lostNMissing organization contacted us with a desire to help,and their concern, hard work and knowledge of the proper procedures available , brought to us such unbelievable comfort.They provided for us a missing persons poster and valuable information to help us find my sister. Cynthia Caron, personally contacted me to attain the proper information to get my sister into the NamUS system. She explained to us what this organization is all about and how it can help us with our lost loved one. She also put us in contact with someone in California that was able to do hands on searching for my sister and who was ultimately responsible for finding her and returning her home. LostNMissing has been a priceless advocate to us,and we thank God for them.

I am the Mother of 22 yr. old Tamara J. Holcknecht. She was murdered in 2007. If not for Cynthia Caron and LostNMissing, I would still be at a dead end. With their assistance, we've reached many people, and have gotten several tips on my Daughter's case. I am so thankful to God for them. They could have turned me away because my Daughter is not lost or missing, but instead, jumped right in and went way beyond just helping me. I wrote Cynthia for advise and have gotten more attention to my Daughter's cold, but still open, case. .. For this I am eternally thankful. LostNMissing gives HOPE and utilizes every means possible to bring comfort and closure to so many families who would otherwise have no where else to turn. Thank you Cynthia Caron and LostNMissing. You ALL are Angels on Earth. YOU ARE HOPE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
