See Something, Say Something

The NYPD relies on its collaboration with communities and neighborhoods to assist police in finding people wanted in connection with a crime, or for questioning, or in locating a missing child or elderly person.


Help the NYPD to locate a person wanted for questioning or in connection with a crime. View the latest information on wanted suspects, including photographs, videos, and descriptions on Twitter at @NYPDTips. If you recognize a wanted person, or would like more information about the Crime Stoppers progam, visit the Crime Stoppers website or call 800-577-TIPS with your anonymous tip. Your information could lead to an arrest and indictment with a reward for you, and prevent further criminal activity committed by that person.

Missing Persons

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. The @NYPDMissing Twitter account features some of the latest information on missing persons in New York City.

If you know the whereabouts of, or have any information about, a person classified as missing, please notify the Missing Persons Squad at 212-694-7781. Favor de notificar a Missing Persons Squad 212-694-7781.
