ACR has teamed up with various organisations specializing in missing persons. Our official missing persons database is run through Pink Ladies.
We have note over the years there is some sick individuals who post incorrect details stating the missing person is found… thus impeding the crucial and often critical time which can lead to life and death where the public at large will stop their lookout for the missing person due to wrong information posted.
We will not under any circumstances stand down or inform members of the public of the reported missing person been found until everything is 100% verified form Pink Ladies and until we have received their official poster confirming that the missing person is indeed found.
The official missing persons posters from Pink Ladies is circulated via our various platforms which include professional members from EMS, Law Enforcement, Disaster Management, Towing & Recovery etc.
Many police stations around the country still try and make you wait 48hrs before allowing you to open a missing persons report… please see extract below including the link to the official South African Police Services Government website:
When a person goes missing, it is of the utmost importance for the SAPS to fulfil our mandate to serve and protect the citizens of South Africa. It is essential to take steps and start the investigation into a missing person’s case immediately. You can assist the SAPS when reporting a missing person by following these steps:
THERE IS NO WAITING PERIOD TO REPORT A MISSING PERSON!
- Report a missing person at your nearest police station immediately.
- Produce a recent photograph of the missing person, if possible.
- Give a complete description of the missing person’s last whereabouts, clothes that they were wearing, as well as any information that can assist the investigating officer.
- Complete and sign a SAPS 55(A) form. This form safeguards the SAPS from hoax reports and indemnifies the SAPS to distribute the photograph and information of the missing person.
- Obtain the investigating officer’s contact details, and send any additional information that might become available.
If a missing person is found or returns voluntarily, inform the investigating officer immediately.
- A SAPS 92 form must be completed to inform the Bureau of Missing Persons that the missing person’s report can be removed from the circulation system.
Let us be vigilant and work collectively to keep families together and safe.
