The Missing Persons Squad is part of the NYPD Detective Bureau. Cases are often prompted by an active Amber Alert for a missing or abducted child 17 years of age or younger, or an active Silver Alert for a senior citizen who might have Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or other mental disability. Cases may also focus on a person missing under suspicious circumstances, or a missing person who might be suicidal.
Please call 911 or notify the NYPD Missing Persons Squad as soon as possible to report that a person is missing because late notification can cause the loss of valuable time in conducting a search. There are no requirements to wait a specified amount of time before contacting the NYPD. NYPDnews.com lists some of the latest information on missing persons in New York City.
