Remember those times in school when you and your good friend hung out all the time? Losing a friend is tough, yet finding them again is so exciting. Hopefully this will give you some ideas of how to find that long lost friend.


  1. Start out by looking up the person's name on Google. You can also search the person's name in "Google Images" for pictures of the person and then run through some of the sites on Google for that person's name.
  2. Get a Facebook. Sometimes in these modern days, if you have a Facebook you can search your friend's name. If she/he has a Facebook, it will let you know. Just be aware that searches of some people with common names might come up with lots of results that you will have to sift through.
  3. Use an online "people" search engine/finder. You can find these by searching on Google or US Search or 123people.
  4. Search There is over 100k people on that site, and there's bound to be someone on there that knows your friend. Maybe you'll find another person you were both friends with, and you could send a message and ask them about the person you're looking for.
  5. Try It's a meta-search engine that searches for people across IM, social networking, and dating sites.
