Stichting Missing In Action (MIA) will act on requests for help which are in most cases issued by family asking to help with searching for their missing loved ones. In some cases the request for help comes for example from someone who found something while searching with a metal detector or government institutes. Any request for help will be taken in consideration as long as it fits our goal: Missing In Action World War II ground losses within the Benelux and Germany.
