Missing Persons Overseas


If a family member or friend goes missing in a foreign country, or if you are concerned about the welfare of a family member who is overseas, the Trinidad and Tobago Diplomatic Mission can help.




What should I do?

You should first make a thorough check to determine if you can locate the missing person yourself.  You should then contact the police in the country in which the missing person resides and file a missing persons report.

How can I help?

To help the authorities start their search, please provide as much of the following information as possible:

 

  • Your full name, address, phone number and relationship to the missing person.
  • Name, date of birth and passport number of the missing person.
  • Last known address and phone number of the missing person and their travel itinerary.
  • Reason for their travel abroad.
  • A recent photograph of the missing person.
  • Date of last contact.
  • Other points of contact abroad (friends, business associates, hotel, etc.).

 

The missing person has a right to privacy.  Consular staff will inform you if the missing person is located, but they may not be able to pass on details of his or her whereabouts.  It is up to the missing person to make contact with the enquirer if he or she wishes to do so.

 

The authorities should be contacted immediately if the missing person is located.
