Previous studies of galaxy formation have shown that only 10 per cent of the cosmic baryons are in stars and galaxies, while 90 per cent of them are missing. In this talk, I will present three observational studies that coherently find significant evidences of the missing baryons. The first is the cross-correlation between the kinetic Sunyaev-Zeldovich maps from Planck with the linear reconstructed velocity field. We find significance (4.6 sigma) detection of the peculiar motion of gas on Mpc scales, for which we can reconstruct the baryon fraction. The second study is the cross-correlation between the thermal Sunyaev- Zeldovich effect with gravitational lensing map and we detect the cross-correlation for 13 sigma with RCS LenS and Planck data. The third study is to stack the pairs of luminous red galaxies and subtract the halo contribution, which leads to the detection of gas within filaments. The last study is the dispersion measurement of the kSZ effect from MCXC cluster, which is measured at 2.8 sigma C.L. I will discuss the implication of these results.
