How we work
Our alert program acts on behalf of law enforcement in notifying communities nationwide about a missing child (potentially Autistic/have a cognitive disability) or elderly person (often with Alzheimer’s/dementia), the disabled, and college students. This program is active only by law enforcement and is available to all municipal, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the USA.
Through a high-speed telephone alert, we have the capacity to inform residents and businesses in the area surrounding where the missing person was last seen. Our Recovery Specialists use digital mapping and satellite imagery to set a radius and send alerts. Our specialists are available 24/7 – 365. Our system is capable of placing 1,000 alert calls in one minute. These alerts contain a detailed description of the individual, their last known whereabouts, and the name and phone number of the agency working the case. Call recipients are prompted to call the agency if they have information pertaining to the case or the missing person.
Our Child Abduction Response Team (C.A.R.T.) Notification Program is the activation arm for many C.A.R.T.s throughout the country. This program uses a pre-established calling list set up with A Child Is Missing by the team’s liaison and, when notified by the team, A Child Is Missing activates the team and deploys it to the command post set up to respond to the child abduction. This program was the first of its kind in Florida.
