How to Locate an Incarcerated Person

A reader recently asked us how to find out if a person has been arrested. While we are not aware of how to find specific information on arrests, the public, including family members and friends, can find out if a person is incarcerated in a county jail or state prison. This information is available for prisoners incarcerated in private and public facilities.

The information is publicly available, and many of the larger jails and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) make it available online. Below is a short list of some the larger correctional institutions and links to their prisoner databases. Smaller institutions may require a phone call to the facility.

Select Jails and TDCJ Information:

  • Houston (Harris County Jail): http://apps.jims.hctx.net/sopublic/
  • Dallas (Dallas County Jail): http://www.dallascounty.org/jaillookup/
  • San Antonio (Bexar County Jail): http://www.bexar.org/bcsheriff/activityreports.htm
  • Austin (Travis County Jail): http://public.co.travis.tx.us/sips/default.aspx
  • El Paso (El Paso County Jail): http://www.epcounty.com/JailSearch/fJailSearch.aspx
  • Texas Department of Criminal Justice: http://168.51.178.33/webapp/TDCJ/index2.htm
TDCJ also accepts telephone and email requests for prisoner information. To locate a prisoner please call 936-295-6371, or 800-535-0283. Requesters can email classify@tdcj.state.tx.us the prisoner’s full name and 7-digit TDCJ number. If requesters do not know the TDCJ number, you must provide the exact date of birth and if that information is unknown you can provide the approximate age and county of conviction in order to obtain the following:
  • TDCJ number
  • Prisoner location
  • Offense of Conviction
  • Incarceration history: offense, county and court of conviction of offenses for which the offender was incarcerated previously
  • Current incarceration: offense, county and court of conviction
  • Projected Release Date

Do you know how difficult it is to try and locate a family member incarserated in another state?  It is absoluteyl impossible!  I can find no information what so ever1  I would think prisoner location would be free public information.  Every place on line charges high prices for any information. I am appalled at the lack of information open to me about the where abouts of my own son!

I have been trying to find David Kingman Guthrie for several months with no luck.  His DOB is 11-3-1956.

He is the blood father of my stepson and I'm trying to adopt him but can't find Guthrie to deliver the paperwork.

He has been in and out of jail his entire life, is a known drug addict, and got out of prison in April 2005 here in Texas.  I spent almost 1,000.00 in Investigator fees and online searches but still don't have anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you 

My mother used to work for social security and she told me how people used to find others b/f the internet.  I would think this is still a good way.  If you know his full name, his dob, the city/state of his birth, etc., they can send him a letter from you.  They will not give you his info, but they would send him a letter for you.  call SS and see if they can help!

good luck!

We recieved a call from social securitey mistaken him "above" for me Steven Stasevich.

We are wondering if he is still in Texas Prison or Jail. They said he was locked up!

We are concerned about him. His Birthday is 06/05/1974. We would like to locste him.

Any help would be appreciated.

Feel free to get back 989-632-3313

Thanks Steven & Shirley Stasevich.

Well I am looking for a family member, I really don't know where he is in Texas. So I've been calling to many different jails/prisions/counties ect...   & I haven't found. Would someone please tell me other ways to search for him so I can find him. 

Trying to find out what facility my nephew went to after jail stay!  My last letter from him only said I'm gone.  So assuming that meant he went to TDC somewhere in Texas Hopefully.  His Father has cancer, I'm his aunt I have Leukemia, fibromyalgia and , neuropathy.  My reason for telling you these things is in hopes he will get somewhere in a 20mile radius considering we are unable to travel long distances.  Speaking of his Father and myself plus his Grandfather is going 80 years of age.  If there is anything you can do in this matter it would greatly apperciated.        Sincerely, Carolyn A. Stanford

Call his lawyer even though your nephew has been sentenced and shiped of to prison, its still his lawyers job to help.If he/she doesnt already know where he is they can find out.The only problem is they're not suppose to talk to unauthorized persons but if you explain the situation they should be willing to get a message to him...Also u could try to call the captain at the county jail he was in. Again explain the urgency of needing to find him ..Or the judge that oversaw his trial .you can get that info online or courthouse or jailhouse...gd luck..And im am sorry to here about you and your family members illnesses. My prayers go out to you and your family.

I have been trying to find out what happened to "Rickis".  Last I knew he was waiting for sentencing in GEO Val Verde Prison.  I have moved several times and unfortunately lost communication with him and don't know what happened to him.  Please, please help me find out if he is still in prison or if he was released.  The last mail I recieved from him had # 40674280.  He also wrote 6-A-A-11.  I would appreciate it if someone could help me find him or at least know when he was released or any information that may help me.  God Bless!
