I am the parent of Sean SIDI age 19, who vanished from San Francisco, CA May 21, 2013. LosNMissing has been of invaluable help in he search for my son. In the world of missing persons, where there are few resources for families of missing persons 18 years and older, LostNMissing fills that much needed void, providing support to families with missing loved ones, with professionalism, dedication, compassion and humanity. Among other things, LostNMissing located and paid for a billboard in San Francisco, featuring my son and 4 other missing young men, provided beautifully designed fliers and digital themes to raise awareness of the search for my son (and 4 others from San Francisco) LostNMissing truly goes the extra mile, even contacting a web master at one of the locations of a sighting of my son. One truly gets the impression that LostNMissing (and Cynthia Caron) cares for each and every missing person. I will be forever grateful to LostNMissing and Cynthia Caron for their help in the search for my son, Sean Sidi, (who remains missing as of Feb 2014).

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.

My father in law went missing without a word to the world and nothing could be done by the police unless we traveled from NC to Ny to report him missing by immediate family. I registered him under the Lostnmissing Foundation database and across the world exposure was out there to get the word out to find him. Thank you for all the support.

My worst nightmare began on 6/22/14, when my beloved husband and wonderful father of our daughter, Lilly left the house and was missing for over a week. I got a call on 6/30/14 that a body has bound been found and 24 hrs. later, it was positively identified as my husband. As soon as Lost'N'Missing became involved, I received tremendous help and support. I was provided with guidance and compassion during our time searching for my husband. Even after he has been found, I rec'd beautiful messages from Lost'N' Missing. I cannot even explain/express my gratitude for this organization. I felt my life was a lifetime movie, it still feels that way, but their continued words of encouragement give me strength to go on. Lost'N'Missing is a great organization and without their help, I don't know where I'd be today ~ my state of mind became quickly disrupted and I couldn't function properly trying to complete normal daily tasks. They were and are here for me during the most difficult time of my life. I'm forever in debt for the great service they so freely express and give.

I wouldn't ask for a change, everything that I experienced was amazingly helpful and uplifting.
