Search for missing relatives

  • Search for your relatives on social media (Facebook, WhatsApp, etc.). When doing so, try spelling your relatives' names in various ways. 
  • Seek out shared contacts, as they may be able to get in touch with missing family members.
  • Try to re-establish contact with your family's local community in your country of origin, as they may know where your relatives are.
  • Look up family members on 'Trace the Face'. This is an International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) website where individuals who are searching for family members can leave a picture of their missing relatives and a phone number. If you want any relatives' photos and details to appear on this site, you will need to make an appointment with us.
  • Do not give up after your first attempt. Keep checking social media and Trace the Face at least once a month to see whether there have been any developments, as new cases and messages come in every day.
