The following are three helpful sites that should assist you with the search for a friend or family member who is incarcerated in a state, federal, or immigration (ICE) facility:
CDCR Inmate Locator - Allows online look-up of inmates in CDCR custody at both in- and out-of-state facilities.
ICE Online Detainee Locator System - Tells you if someone is in ICE custody or was released in the last 60 days.
Federal Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator - Information on federal inmates from 1982 to present.
