What to do in missing person situation

Unfortunately, almost every day a police report filed about a missing person in Canada. Most of them are found fast and returned home safely, but for in some cases, the search continues for months. A missing person is always a tragedy for the family and friends. People have no rest, can’t sleep peacefully, when a family member is not at home and safe. But the police and family members work hard every day to locate the missing person and provide help if needed.
