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

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!!

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 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.

When I contacted Cynthia we were frantic. Our 20 month old niece had been kidnapped and was reportedly across state lines within an hour. We needed flyers made that we could use for media and social media posts that would catch attention to all those who seen it. I had them in roughly an hour of asking. Talk about quick service! When your hands are tied and you can't do much having someone practically drop everything to give you the tools to at least get her face out there means EVERYTHING! Thank you so much for responding and acting so quickly. Positive note: we had her back in 5 days time. She was indeed in another state and I know these flyers helped us get her home SAFE!

I wish there was not a need for what Cynthia does, but, unfortunately there is. The moment Cynthia found out about my son, she was on it. I had tremendous support through the worst time of my life and I will be forever grateful and humbled.

Cynthia was wonderful in setting up the page for my missing boyfriend and giving me resources and also turning the page to a memorial page once he was not found alive 7 weeks after.

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.
