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.

I have been helping a man search for his missing sister, Tammy Sue Clements who went missing in 1980 at age 15. This gentleman is uncertain how to navigate these terrible waters. I reached out to MANY organizations with what info I had- trying to get this little lost girl out there where her voice could be heard. She had not even had a missing persons report filed- ever. The organization Lostnmissing was the fist organization to help me- to help us I should say. Through them Tammy had her first flier made, and we were finally able to start posting her to many different pages. We had great difficulty in getting the NCIC number so that this little girl could be listed at sites such as doenetwork and namus. Lostnmissing not only took our report, but helped us gain the ncic number from a small town police department who were reluctant to give it to family. Their advocacy for the lost has helped us immensely and inspired me to continue working with families, knowing I have them to aid me.

This non profit is a blessing to the Missing and endangered in our country. 24 hours a day, state reps are on social media with any and all information they have to help families and the lost find their way back home. The dedication of these people, is above and beyond. My own daughter volunteered, who passed away in May. She worked endless hours posting to help families, identify John and Jane Doe's, and those missing for years. The agony of families, cases long forgot by police, and these families need closure and peace, and these folks with Lostnmissing wont stop till every lost soul is found, and closure is final.

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

I would change nothing,

Amazing support and compassion for the missing and their loved ones. I pray that you never have a loved one go missing, but if you do, I pray that the resources of LostNMissing be available for you. From creating FB pages to identifying resources for billboards, this organization made me feel as if I was the only client served and all along held my heart with genuine concern and empathy. Even after my son's remains were recovered, they checked in to see how I was doing. You have no idea how simple kindness can help a grieving heart. Thank you LostNMissing: you provided resources, hope and kindness in my darkest hour.

When we alerted the news about my sister's disappearance, Cynthia from LostNMissing contacted me right away. They had created missing posters, and contacted me to ask if we would like the story published the story on their site. Cynthia collected the information needed to give a complete and accurate description and everyone from the organization were very compassionate, caring and helpful. They were prepared to do whatever it took to make sure the story was out there. The organization had many contacts available for us for news organizations and offered to help set up interviews. Cynthia offered a ton of great advice from searching to making public statements. She helped provide tips and potential leads to the police and was constantly searching for information leading to the recovery of my sister. The staff at LostNMissing created a facebook page to spread awareness and were vigilant in monitoring it for any leads. I can't thank them enough for their help, prayers, compassion and care. This is a truly wonderful group of people! Drew Bradshaw

This is a very important organization with an excellent team who cares about the missing and reacts promptly. We need more people like them in the world. I contacted the Sacramento Police and told them about my missing brother but they didn't do anything at all. They didn't at least follow their procedures of listing him as a missing person who is mentally disable and unable to feed himself with no where to sleep. lostnmissing got on the task and thanks to the team, we have found my brother. Thanks again Cynthia and April!

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
