Question: Do I have to wait 24 hours to make a police report for a missing person?
Answer: You do not have to wait 24 hours to file a report with police. A missing person report can be filed as long as there is reason to believe that he or she is missing.
If there’s a possibility that the person may be in danger or suicidal, it’s important to call police.
If he or she is a senior or requires medication, it’s important to report it to police as soon as possible.
Please be willing to meet with an officer and relate all pertinent information regarding this person.
