INTERPOL Yellow Notices

Yellow notices are issued to help locate missing persons, often minors, or to help identify persons who are unable to identify themselves.

From the INTERPOL site:

A Yellow Notice is a global police alert for a missing person. It is published for victims of parental abductions, criminal abductions (kidnappings) or unexplained disappearances.

The Yellow Notice can also be used to help identify a person who is unable to identify himself or herself.

This is a valuable law enforcement tool that can increase the chances of a missing person being located, particularly if there is a possibility that the person might travel, or be taken, abroad.
