How do I locate someone in Immigration (ICE) custody?
If you believe your loved one is being held in immigration custody by ICE then you can use the online ICE Detainee Locator System to find them. You may search for them by their A# or by name. You will need to know their country of birth.
It may take up to 48 hours* for ICE to process an individual after taking them into custody. If the person you are looking for was recently taken into ICE custody they might not show up in the system yet. There is nothing you can do but wait for the system to be updated.
You can also call Toll Free ICE Detainee Hotline (855) 448-6903
In NYC you may try contacting ICE directly at (212) 264-4213
In New Jersey you may try contacting ICE directly at (973) 645-3666
