A Child Is Missing Inc

Dedicated to the search and early recovery of missing children and elderly.



We assist law enforcement agencies in the early search and recovery of missing children (often with Autism & Down syndrome), the elderly (often with Alzheimer’s disease), the disabled, and college students in the first hours of their disappearance, by use of our Alert System. We also offer Child Safety Education Programs to children and adolescents through parks and recreation summer camp programs, and in schools to vulnerable/high-risk youth. 


Since 1997, our Alert Program has been assisting law enforcement nationwide in saving the lives of children and the elderly. We have assisted in over 65,000 cases and sent out over 80 million alert calls.

To serve as educators and resources for children facing the potential dangers of bullying, peer pressure, and predators both online and offline.  We believe children have the right to a safe and bully-free educational environment. We provide them with personal safety and anti-bullying guidance to help them with effective communication skills to navigate their own successful path in life. 

Missing Alerts

We send out alerts to the surrounding areas where children or elderly persons are last seen before they're reported as missing. 

Child Safety Education Program

Our teachers visit summer camps, and schools to educate children and adolescents about effective communication, awareness of bullying, and personal safety, including dangers of the internet.
