Missing Child Statistics
Finding Missing Children - Professional Caseworkers with a 24/7 Hotline
Frantic parents and law enforcement officials call our hotline and talk with caseworkers 24 hours a day; 7 days a week; 365 days a year. Initial phone calls with parents average an hour, with numerous follow-up calls. We counsel parents on ways to search for their children. When appropriate, we create and send personalized missing child posters to each family, offer poster faxing services to parents and police, place missing child posters on our website, forward leads to law enforcement officials, and have our Rapid Response Team eVolunteer force distribute missing child posters across the nation.
We are the national leader in this field. Our caseworkers attend daily to the anguish felt by parents of missing children. We turn that anguish into action. Eighty-five percent of our missing children come home safely.
