During the full-scale war, many Ukrainians lost contact with their relatives who were in the occupied territories. After the de-occupation of settlements, mobile communication and the Internet did not appear everywhere, which complicates the search process.
Where to turn to find a relative after the deoccupation of cities?
First of all, you need to apply to the National Police of Ukraine with an application to search for a person.
The National Information Bureau will also help to find out the whereabouts of a relative.
Another option is to contact the call center of the Commissioner for Missing Persons under Special Circumstances at 0-800-339-247.
In addition, there are a number of online services in Ukraine that help to find relatives and loved ones with whom contact has disappeared:
Find Missing is one of the largest resources for finding children and adults.
The Child is Not Alone – The Office of the President created this bot to help children in difficult wartime situations.
Nadiya-bot is a chatbot for finding people in Kharkiv.
Find relatives – a bot created on the initiative of the International Cyber Security Association
Children’s Tracing Service – created to help missing children and their families.
