getting help for someone in Denmark
June 9, 2021 12:20 PM   Subscribe

I'm in a small private group with people from all over the world. One member has confided in us that they need help - professional, help. I'm in the USA, without international calling. I don't know what to do.

I've tried adding international calling to my cell plan and they say it will take a day. I know what school the person goes to, and just want to send a wellness check to them, but I can't even get a phone call to the police.

I know this isn't a typical use of askmefi, but does anyone have any advice for how I could call the nordburg police and explain the situation internationally, or have any resources to assist otherwise?

Check to see if I've posted an update below.

You can FaceTime internationally for free with this person, if that's an option? My husband does that with family in Sweden all the time.

You could get set up to make an international call on Skype in just a couple of minutes, but I bet someone will be along with something more helpful to add shortly.

International calling cards are still available, google search shows walmart has them, or buy minutes online

Best answer: Memail me if you want me to call them. I assume you mean Nordborg? I won't be up all night, but neither will the police in a very small provincial town. Maybe you or I can call the police in S√łnderborg.

I just checked and the police station in Nordborg is closed now.

Response by poster: Hi everyone, I'm sure there's concern. I've made contact with the school (indirectly) and they said they would be taking it very seriously. That's all we can hope for.

Response by poster: Second update, I think we were just in time. The teachers found him, notified his parents, etc. Denmark should be good at handling this kind of thing. Thank you so much.
