El Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes is a group that assists families in their search for a migrant who has gone missing in Mexico.  Their phone number is 55-55-27-54-23 and their email is desaparecidos@sjmmexico.org.  This group is in communication with the network of migrant shelters throughout Mexico, and can conduct a search with them as well as with government authorities if you ask them to.

Many people begin crossing far south into Mexico and have not yet crossed the US–Mexico border when they are in need of emergency assistance.  The Mexican government has a migrant-safety agency called the Grupos Beta. Here are some phone numbers for their offices in Mexico. Call the office closest to where your loved one went missing, but if they don’t answer, try the others.
