Are you or someone you know lost? Please call 911.

We sometimes receive phone calls through this site to report people who are missing, but if someone is lost, the very best thing that person can do is call 911. This will allow the authorities to locate them (or at least get close) based on their cell phone signal. In Maine, the 911 dispatch centers do also have texting capabilities. Texting can be a good solution when you have a low signal or low battery situation. Please note that MASAR teams cannot deploy based on a request from a family member or lost person calling for help; we must be dispatched through the agency having jurisdiction.
