Finding missing family members

We help to restore contact between families separated by armed conflict, disaster or migration by using the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network.

Find my missing family

If families get separated after war, a natural disaster or migration, we trace missing relatives around the world and put them back in contact.

Other organisations that could help find missing family

There are several organisations that can help you find someone in the UK or overseas.


International Day of the Disappeared

International Day of the Disappeared is on 30 August, every year - when we recognise the numbers of people still missing through conflict, disaster and migration.
