Missing Children

The Washington State Patrol Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit (MUPU) will provide a poster with photo for an active missing child ONLY when requested by a family member/legal guardian or the law enforcement agency handling the investigation. The MUPU will provide a data packet for the requestor to fill out and provide essential information on the missing child and will request the most recent, color, good quality digital photo to include on the poster. Once the packet is filled out and signed the MUPU can proceed with the poster and any other investigative assistance requested.

All missing persons need to be reported to the primary law enforcement agency where the person was last seen FIRST before any assistance from the MUPU can begin.

Call 1-800-543-5678 or email to request assistance with a missing child case.
