The American Red Cross helps people look for family members in the USA.
We try to help you when you have lost contact due to:
- armed conflict or other situations of violence, including World War II;
- natural or man-made disasters;
or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.
We will decide if we can help you after analysing your particular case.
Immediately after a major disaster in the USA, the American Red Cross helps people search for their family members through the American Red Cross Disaster Family Linking Website at http://safeandwell.communityos.org/cms/index.php. Anyone can search this website to find out if his or her loved ones are safe and well.
As a last resort, and only if the enquirer consents to it, the American Red Cross may also use radio broadcasts, flyers in public places or print media to locate missing people.
