It happens every day in Washington State. Someone goes missing.

A sigh of relief is breathed when one of these instances is quickly solved, perhaps a misunderstanding or simply someone is too quick to worry, needlessly, and all is well. But all too often, the anguish continues for families who are left desperately wondering.

When Someone Goes Missing in Washington State, Where Can You Turn for Help?

The Washington State Patrol Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit, in concert with local law enforcement agencies, work tirelessly to help find those who've gone missing. We've updated this list, as some cases are solved, and new cases are reported. Happily, some missing persons do come home, but sadly, several of the persons from the list are still mysteriously gone, and if a few cases, were confirmed deceased. Of course, there are several new fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, and friends who have gone missing since, and we've included them here in hopes of reuniting them with their loved ones.
