This 8 x 11” tri-fold brochure is designed as a quick reference guide for when a Native woman goes missing and the immediate steps to take in the first 72 hours. The first 72 hours of a missing person investigation are the most critical, and this brochure serves as a starting point for families, communities and advocacy organizations to organize an immediate response. Important steps include:

- Contact law enforcement

- Gather and track additional information

- Preserve important evidence

- Enlist the immediate help of your family, community or domestic violence program
