About Isle Return

Family members or caregivers complete an enrollment form which includes a photograph and information useful to public safety agencies involved in a search. The registrant’s information is stored in a confidential, information base managed by the Nantucket County Sheriff’s Department. The service is provided at no cost.

Should a wandering event occur:

  • Family members or a caregiver call 9-1-1.

  • Trained public safety personnel use the information compiled in the Isle Return Program portfolio to assist them in locating your loved one. In additional to local and state law enforcement agencies and emergency medical services, 9-1-1 dispatchers will notify Nantucket Cottage Hospital so their staff can be prepared should the missing person appear at that facility.

  • Once public safety personnel locate your loved one, they seek further medical evaluation if necessary, and return him or her home safely.
