The insurance industry has been working overtime in dealing with claims in relation to recent tornadoes, hurricanes and floods in states like AL, TX, FL, N and S CA and elsewhere. Nothing, however, can touch a heart more than the suffering of families who are ripped apart due to a disaster.
During such a situation, the American Red Cross offers services, along with the following points of guidance for families seeking missing loved ones.
6 Tips on Getting in Touch with Missing Family or Friends
- Try calling again and again. If your call cannot go through during peak hours, call during off-peak times.
- Even when you are not successful at calling, texting may still go through.
- Search for information about your loved one on any of his or her social media pages.
- Send your missing loved one an email.
- Get in touch with other relatives or friends who may have information you do not have about the missing person.
- Try contacting anyone that may have seen your missing person; contact places that your loved one is known to frequent. This includes neighbors, employers, schools, churches, synagogues, social clubs.
- Mail a letter to your loved one’s address; it may be forwarded to the place where he or she is currently at.
