I'm not sure how to word this, but are there any veterans' agencies or organizations that would try to help someone locate a missing family member who is a Vietnam veteran?
my much-older brother disappeared around 3 years ago, in California; as I don't live in California, all attempts I've made to try to locate him have failed-- internet searches (including the paid ones), called the P.D. in the city where he'd lived but they said being out of state I can't file a Missing Persons report, and calls/emails to virtually every "helping agency" I could think of out there.
I don't think he's ever been involved with any vets organizations himself (one of those people who refused to seek help for anything), but would they be willing/able to assist me?

Do you have a VA Hospital or Vets Center in your area? If you do you may call them, or, better yet, if you can, go there and talk to them "eye-ball-to-eyeball". They should have contacts to help even if they choose to not share them with you. Strictly depends on the person you talk to.

If you have a correct name, somewhere he lived in the last 20 years and and DOB I can probably find his whereabouts.
