A comprehensive National Park missing persons database


There is currently no centralized database for those who have gone missing in National Parks and/or Forests at the federal level.

We have established this listing in an effort to provide a holistic measure of assistance, both to inform future search efforts and to establish an assistive resource for those who are currently living with the loss of a loved one. 

Missing NPF supports the call for federal agencies to establish, maintain, and share a full listing of those missing in U.S. National Parks and Forests. Meanwhile, we have established our own, and seek your collaboration in providing a meaningfully-detailed source by which to expand public knowledge, identify trends, and empower future search efforts. Join us on this mission.

Searching for the information you’d like to see has never been easier on our website. Our instant results explore page lets you browse through all data or a subset of data, depending on your criteria.
