    Man thats intense. By now I figure the battery would have died anyways.

    Contact his cell phone provider, because they can track where all the phones are if they have GPS function on the phone.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but a friend of ours has gone missing. He's been missing since Dec 14 and he suffers from depression and needs regular medication. The authority s have been contacted etc etc, but no luck yet. I know he has an iphone (which he is not answering). Does anyone know of any reliable apps to track his phone via gps? I have searched of course, but there's so much out there to choose from. Everyone is really worried now, so any info would be really great and appreciated very much. Regards and thanks, J

    There are apps, but he needs to have it installed in order for you to track it. You'd need his login details. Cell phone companies are able to track the phone, but I believe you need to have a warrant. Best of luck in finding your friend.

    I thought that this might be a good place to ask for advice as there are many people on here that can 'think outside the box'.

    A friend of mine has been missing since the 14th of December. He suffers from depression and needs regular medication. We have done all we can to find him. Contacted police, friends, phone companies etc etc. Mailed his Facebook friends everything we can think of basically.

    If any of you guys can think of any different ways to try and find a missing person, I would be so grateful. I'll even pay if the idea works.

    Thanks kindly, J.

    Well since you already asked everyone if they knew where he was then that throws that one out the window now the next question you need to be asking is where would this type of person go by himself? Personally most people who are depressed run to a place where they feel comfortable at. For me I like to go to outside the air force base and watch the jets take off and land because helps calm me down when im pissed off.

    Start asking his friends things he likes to do, places he likes to go and then make an assumption of where he would be at.

    I am sorry to hear that J
    and as bad as it sounds I would definitely check with the city hospitals and public health centers.
    I hope he is not that depressed like suicidal depressed..
    If he is not picking up his phone i would also try to locate his GPS position(in case the phone has that)
    I would also put up some posters in nearby market place..

    Hope that helps

    Thank you ishanguptaa. I already made a post ref gps and looked into it, but that is an almost impossible task. I spent hours looking into that last night. The poster idea is very good. Thanks very much :)

    Ring up your local radio station, there must be a show on at some point in the day that would lend a helping hand ...

    I wonder if it's worthwhile trying to spread the info by way of Facebook or a youtube video or something as well. I know that's easier said than done. Maybe worth a try. The newspaper idea is good, thanks a lot :)

    put your shoes on the person's shoes. where would you go next if that was you? track back where does he usually hangs out when he is still at his normal state. check out his rooms for clues he might write some letter to someone, or a photograph maybe...

    Do you think your friend have money with him? if you think he have enough money to travel 50-70kms and arrange food on the table for 7 days then he may gone to the area of 50-70 kms. 50-70kms is the area which i like to go in case of running out of my home.
    You must check all the nearby areas of 50 kms with the help of police.

    Type his name in Google! make sure you put "quotes" so you get the best results.

    If that don't work;

    Have his parents contact his cell network see if his phone has been on and used at any point; they have ways of seeing where and when it has been on. But you might need a warrant from the Police.
