Missing Poster software (free)

Missing Poster is a software tool to assist Search and Rescue, police and other agencies to create and distribute missing person posters in a standardized format.

You can use this software to create a missing poster for someone who is lost or missing.

It was created over a period of three days after I participated in a large search for a missing woman near Vancouver, British Columbia. I saw a SAR member putting together a missing person poster using Microsoft Paint and I thought that there should be a better way.

This tool prompts the user for the pertinent information, gives an easy way to import the photo, and can create the missing person photo in a variety of file formats. If the information changes, it can be edited easily.


It's free to use, modify and redistribute.

Can be installed or run off a portable hard drive or USB stick

Works online or offline.

Reports can be customized to fit your requirements.

Fields are mostly free text to be flexible for data entry

Posters can be saved, loaded, and edited as new information is discovered

Dealing with images is simplified, and printing is easy.

Exports to a number of standard formats for posting to social media, posting online and email
