Call 911 when there is:
Although your address will appear on the 911-computer screen when you call, the dispatcher will still immediately ask you your address and the nature of your emergency. This is to verify that the address on the screen is accurate. On rare occasions, the address displayed on the screen is different than the location the caller is actually calling from. Also, the location of cell phone calls do not display on the screen. If your emergency requires fire, rescue, medical, or police response, the Lafayette County Communications Center will take your information and then dispatch appropriate personnel. It is important that the 911 number not be called for road conditions, general information, to report a non-emergency crime, information, etc. Tying up these lines for non-emergency issues could cost a life.

There is no rule that states that you have to wait 24 hours to report a missing person. It depends on the person who is missing, their age, mental state and vulnerability.
If the missing person is a child, elderly, or a person in a very depressed state then you need to alert the police right away. If the person is late home or late for an appointment, then it is sensible to try and contact the person or the last place they were, then wait a reasonable amount of time prior to contacting the police.
Normally, if there is no new information related to your case, and you did not request the officer call you back, they will not call. Due to the number of cases the officers work, they are unable to give updates on all of the cases.
You are encouraged, however, to call the officer working the case and ask about the status. Especially if you have new information or were expecting the officer to call back and they did not.
On occasion, because of schedule changes or days off, it may be a few days before they get your message. If you have new information about your case that needs immediate action, and the officer working on your case is off duty, report the information to the duty officer for follow up.
