Missing Person in Kenya
February 26, 2021

American Citizen Services (ACS) can help you locate an American citizen whom you believe to be missing in Kenya. Please contact us at Kenya_ACS@state.gov or by phone directly at 20-363-6451 within Kenya or +254-(0)20-363-6451 from the United States. The more information you are able to give us, the more easily we will be able to locate your friend or relative.

Kenya is a large country and communications and infrastructure in many parts of the country are not highly developed. Hundreds of thousands of foreigners live in Kenya and millions more visit every year.  It can be difficult and time consuming to find someone. Please note that ACS is constrained by the Privacy Act of 1974 and cannot share any information about an American citizen with another person without written permission from that citizen. If we are able to locate your friend or relative, we will ask that person to get in touch with you, or to complete a waiver of his or her privacy rights.
