Google and Red Cross help track down loved ones during disaster - FOX 35 News Orlando

Tracking down loved ones

Posted: Updated:

Google Person Finder helps people reconnect with friends and loved ones in the aftermath of natural and humanitarian disasters.

Google notes that all data entered will be available to the public and viewable and usable by anyone.  Google does not review or verify the accuracy of this data.

The American Red Cross Safe and Well website is a central location for people in disaster areas in the United States to register their current status, and for their loved ones to access that information. It helps provide displaced families with relief and comfort during a stressful time.

The Safe and Well website is easy to use:

  • If you are currently being affected by a disaster somewhere in the U.S., click List Myself as Safe and Well, enter your pre-disaster address and phone number, and select any of the standard message options.
  • If you are concerned about a loved one in the U.S., click Search Registrants and enter the person's name and pre-disaster phone number OR address. If they have registered, you will be able to view the messages they have posted.

Safe and Well is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is accessible in both English and Spanish.
