From the first time Our family contacted Cynthia from lostnmissing she has been a great comfort to our family, no matter what time of day she was always there for us. Our search for our son came to a tragic end and I don't know how we could have held up if not for the help of lostnmissing.They made missing person flyers and helped our family get billboards(at no cost to our family)thru out the Boston area. Lostnmissing did not stop when Dennis was found they have continued to be a source of strength to our family thru these very difficult days.Our family do not have enough words to express how much we have been comforted and helped by Cynthia and all the staff at lostnmissing.With our thanksEd bushard

LostNMissing, Inc. has been great to my family in just a few days. My mother reached out on behalf of my brother (Quantez Russell) who has been missing since 11/15/2015 under suspicious circumstances. LostNMissing has helped us greatly with creating a YouTube tribute video as well as a Facebook page to keep the public informed with facts in his case and asking for the publics help.

I can't even say how many times this organization has helped in the 8 years my daughter has been missing, from balloon rallies, paying for our hotel stays so we can search, making groups and videos, photos of my missing daughter. I can message Cyndi Caran and instantly she's there for me. I'm so grateful. You don't get better then them. I've included one of the many fliers this org has created for me. Their a God send.

When my granddaughter went missing on Feb 25, 2016, someone put me in contact with Cynthia of Lost n Missing. She was so supportive. She asked a lot of questions. She told us who who we needed to contact and she talked with others. She made posters and graphics. Through this time she regularly checks in with us, the support is amazing. As we have received leads, which have gone nowhere Cynthia help to follow up and helps us get over that. She has dealt with the troublemakers. I don't know how we would be able to have gotten through all of this time if not for her guidance, direction and support. We hope and pray to find my granddaughter and I'm grateful to have someone we can trust and rely on.

My son was missing for 6 months. With the assistance of missing persons I was able to share my son's information with thousands of people. As more people saw the posters, more leads came in and we were able to recover him alive and now the process of healing and helping him to rebuild his life. Missing persons constantly stayed in contact with us, encouraged us and gave us hope. They assisted with law enforcement resources and other resources to achieve my family's goal of finding our loved one. Glory be to God for this great organization. We are truly thankful.

Amazing organization! They put a lot of time and effort into what they do. After already taking the time to create a digital poster for my missing family member and complete my submission to their website, they even offered to make a missing Facebook page just for my family member, which they did. I can’t thank them enough.

Cynthia has been very kind and sensitive to my situation. She promptly called me when she was informed of an unidentified person that may be my sister. She walked me through the steps and helped me understand the process. My sister was identified and now we can have a proper celebration of her life. Thank you so much for all your help

The team at Lostnmissing are very compassionate and knowledgeable. My mother went missing for the worst 12 hours of our lives! With guidance from Lostnmissing we were able to get the word out with their posters and her car was found fast! That gave us the general area to search and she was found safe, cold and hungry, but safe! Thank you for your amazing work and guidance!!

My son became involved with drugs when he was eleven years old. He birth family had a history of addiction for at least the past two generations. A series of heartbreaking factors led to a perfect storm. He became an addict almost as soon as he was introduced to methamphetamines. He became involved with the juvenile law system within two months of his first use. I was very naïve. I didn't understand the amount of pain, confusion, and darkness that happens in a family when your child is an addict. With each arrest, my son became more and more empowered in his lifestyle. I felt all alone. There was nobody for me to turn to. Someone finally invited me to join TAPU online, and from there, I was introduced to LostNissing, Inc. From the first five seconds on the phone with them, I felt like my son mattered, my other two young children mattered, and I mattered. No one judged or blamed us. They had resources that I didn't have. They were able to give me other sites and phone numbers to follow through on. They distributed posters. Just as important, they took all of my information for a database that might help save other children from pushers and sex traffickers some day. I never felt alone when they were working with me. The family is just as important as the missing with these guys. It is impossible to put a price tag on what they give to families during those moments of need. I wish that I would have found them sooner.
