Submissions on Facebook can be done by clicking here. You can post it yourself. In order to view it you will have to make sure you have changed to the visitors section on the page.
To post a missing person on this website, please send me the information through email along with two photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will put the article together and then share it on the Missing Persons of America website and social media (Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter), including MPofA’s Facebook page that reaches on an average of 100,000 people a week. (Please note, the person must have been reported as missing by the police).
Asking you questions about the circumstances surrounding the disappearance, asking for needed information to support the post, providing guidance through the process, suggestions to bring the best attention to the post, and continued support with updates and answering of public questions. My years of experience will result with a post written to help garnish the most possible views. I provide further support by doing social media for you to get the process going and submitting the story through many channels AND sending the story directly to the media, from my media sources I have collected through the years. (Please note there is no guarantee that media will pick up the story as it is up to their discretion.) I provide support by liaison between you and the media or I can provide the media with your private contact information so they can contact you directly.
Examples: You can do an interview like the David Neily story or the Robin Burton story or you can provide information and I will write-up a full-page, including quotes from the family, like the Kristin Smart story. Your post will remain on the front page of MPofA for 24-hours.

The article will then be posting also on social media, including but not limited to, Missing Persons of America’s Facebook page that has over 50,000 likes, and is shared by others on Facebook and is regularly monitored by news and other missing advocates and non profits. Also, submissions will appear on Tumbler, Reddit, GooglePlus and Linkin. Your MP’s story can reach anywhere from 2,000 to 20,000 views and even as much as 200,000 views as it is shared around the web through the various social media sites and Google searches Also, please note that the media reads this site to obtain information or to contact me to get more details about a missing person and ask for the families contact number so they can do an interview with them, for example the Deborah Heriford story. Also TV producers look over this site for ideas for TV shows and will also contact me for more details about a particular missing person story they are thinking of doing, for example the Cassie Cotta story was one of those stories that made it to air. We cannot guarantee your story will be picked up by the news or media, but we can help get out to the public, which will give it a better chance.
Stella Mao emails me regarding her brother, Joseph that was showcased on MPofA, “A billion thanks for your help. I wanted to let you know that my brother had just been found. It wouldn’t have happened without your help. We can’t thank you enough. I’m calling/writing to friends and family. And will post the news to the FB page as soon as I can.
“I looked through every single one of these missing cases and it makes my heart ache all over again. So many people missing without a trace…how can this be? Thank you for continuing to share Macin’s story and ‘Missing Persons of America’ for posting.”–Gerphardlt Daily
Why the big difference in shares and reads between what I post and what you post?
Because I have been doing this for so many years, I know how to bring attention to a story and what makes people want to share the story and photo. Plus, I have access to over 50,000 people and growing daily. Also, I can pin a story to the top which helps increase the views, and keeps it from dropping down on Facebook and getting lost by other submissions. Also, many times, the media will pick up the story, either because I have forwarded the story to them from my contacts and past communications with the media, or they will see a story on the website.
This is one of the most sought after attention that the family of a missing person is looking for. For examples of what I am talking about, make sure to scroll to the examples above to see. A self-submit on Facebook gets around 500 reads and up to 50 shares, before it begins to disappear from the top, a post that we put on the website and then share on Facebook gets 10,000 to 250,000 views and 500 to 3000 shares, depending on which type of submission you chose.
