Search Tips

General Searches – Not all fields are required. A general search using one field—Last Name, Gender, Age, County or City—may return more complete results than a search using a combination of fields. Leaving all fields blank will produce a complete listing of all missing persons in Montana.

Geographic Area Searches – To search for everyone reported missing by law enforcement agencies in a particular geographic area, use only the County and/or City fields.

Note: County and City searches are based on the location of the investigating law enforcement agency, which may not be the community in which the missing person lived.

Last Name Wildcard Searches – The percent sign (%) may be used as a wildcard character in the Last Name field to represent one or more other letters. For example, searching for "sm%" would yield every missing person with a last name beginning with "sm", such as Smith, Smithson and Smythe. The wildcard character may be useful when you do not know the exact spelling of a name.

Note: Wildcard searches are only allowed on the Last Name field.

Show Photographs Option – For faster search results, you can uncheck the show photographs check box.
