A CHILD IS MISSING, INC.
Since 1997, when A Child Is Missing, Inc. began our Alert Program to find the missing, and to date, we have been credited with nearly 2,700 safe-assisted recoveries. That means that nearly 2,700 families have been reunited with loved ones and lives have been saved.
While we are proud of what we have been able to accomplish with our Alert Program, we come together every day as a staff to address our desire to diminish the number of children who go missing…diminish the number of children who are placed in dangerous situations that more often than not result in a violent, if not deadly, outcome.
Every year, millions of children and adolescents in the United States are impacted upon by abuse, neglect and violence in their homes, schools and communities. Law Enforcement can and does play an important role in protecting youth from violence and other risks, and in preventing youth from engaging in acts of crime and disorder. Yet, Law Enforcement is the first to say it takes a community to protect our children.
