Poor you. But still, why did you file a missing report almost immediatly after he was 'disappeared', instead of A) going to his house, B) call his parents, C) call his job/school? A little over the top, isn't it?

Today, while I was fishing, I received massive amounts of text. The police was looking for me and I've to explain my Ex didn't know we aren't attached anymore. FML

or better yet; Today: I was out fishing and the sheriff's office tracked me down because my crazy ass girlfriend can't go half a day without blowing up my phone. So, I asked the deputy to tell that nut job that we are through and when I unhooked my 8lb bass, I went to the court to file a restraining order. The flip sides of these FML's are great!

That proposed guy sounds like an idiot, after all only one would break up with someone using the police. You also can't report a missing person under half a day, and you can't file a restraining order with no reason.

Yes that is a bit over the top, but I understand somewhat. My bf went missing all day yesterday, after not showing up for a tournament with his nephew. We knew he had left to go there, and no one anywhere had heard from him, so I was pretty worried, but waited it out, and sure enough, he showed up later that night. sometimes you have to be a little patient

I agree, she should have tried harder to figure out where the boyfriend was. However the police generally don't let you file a report until they've been missing for 48 hours or something. So she probably hadn't heard from him in a few days.

I'm not a clingy bitch, but being worried enough to file a report doesn't seem unreasonable to me given the circumstances. Assuming the OP's boyfriend was at least normally reliable. Her boyfriend went AWOL after going fishing - likely somewhere remote and/or on the water - the odds of an accident are higher than than him just deciding to bail on fairly major plans without notice and then avoid any/all contact. OP probably sent quite a lot of concerned messages (and calls) before going to the cops - at the very least, her boyfriend should have replied that he was fine, even if he was going to be an asshole and not ever break up directly. And as other posters have noted, for the police to consider it, this is over at minimum a 48h window. However, I do agree that if they've been going out long enough to have mutual friends, she should have contacted some of them as well to see if they knew anything. Maybe she did, and they didn't...
