Aadhaar has helped trace missing persons before

There have been many such cases where Aadhaar details have been helpful in reuniting missing persons with their family.  In July 2017, a speech impaired boy was reunited with his family in Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh using Aadhaar details. Around the same time, another boy who was missing for over two years was reunited with family in Maharashtra’s Latur district.
