Check on someone & check in on someone

Is it correct to say that "to check on someone" and "to check in on someone" share the same meaning?

If not, when should I use each of them?

Would you please give me a couple of examples?

Thank you

@paok1970,
IMO they mean the same thing, but I would never say "check in on someone".

@paok1970,
"Check on" implies no personal contact. "Check in on" implies physically entering someone's presence.
