When a missing person is reported, a risk assessment is done in which a series of questions will identify the nature and urgency of the case. Based on this assessment, police will be dispatched immediately, or the file will be forwarded to be further investigated.

Officers will look to locate the individual as soon as possible.

Amber Alerts

An Amber Alert is a type of public notification that can only be done under specific circumstances that are regulated provincially – namely when a child or an adult with a disability has been abducted and is in danger of serious harm or death. For more information on Amber Alerts, visit the OPP website.

To report someone as missing, call the Guelph Police Service at 519-824-1212 immediately.
