The research-journalist Müge Anlı has invited thousands of relatives to her program to find their missed ones and she was successful in this endeavor. On one hand she was happy with the families, but on the other hand she has been thinking, how the people, who can't express themselves, can be found in the fastest possible way. With the experience she gained from the program, she developed the "mark of love" project. And with the opening of the www.benibuldular.com website her project was launched.
According to the project, the people, who are endangered of getting lost, will receive a mark of love number on their left wrist. This number is a code for the contact information of the relatives of the bearer. The webpage of the mark of love will keep all the information in confidence. Only on demand will the information be given to the authorities.
The system of the mark of love: if you find someone, who can't express themselves, check their left wrist for the mark of love. You call Müge Anlı and her team, and tell them the mark of love number. They will check the database of www.benibuldular.com and contact the relatives of the missed person.
Additionally the family can call Müge Anlı to report a missing person by giving the mark of love number and other information.
The aim of Müge Anlı's project is to bring back people, who can't express themselves nor tell the number or address of their relatives.

Our first lost person was found
Mentally challenged Murat Tunç was lost in Istanbul Sancaktepe on December 14th, 2015. His elder sister Şehnaz Bozkurt had him get a mark. Same day, a police officer called our program and told us he found a challenged citizen with the mark on his arms.
Using our database in www.benibuldular.com we found out that he was Murat Tunç himself. We notified his elder sister Şehnaz Bozkurt and gave her the happy news.
He was found within hours and delivered to his loving family. His sister's words; "If he hadn't got that mark, he would still be outside".
He was united with his family just with a phone call; without any lost person notices or being sent to social services.
It is free for those, who are endangered of getting lost (mentally disabled, elderly). Other people may need to pay a fee.
