Protect Your Child

A child goes missing every 40 minutes in the United States, this is an alarming statistic. While 80% of these children are taken by a relative, 20% are taken by a stranger. What a horrifying experience for a child to go through!

Parents do not leave your child unattended, even for a moment. Even older children should not be allowed to roam around town on their own.

In our family we have a password, if a stranger walks up (or even someone my son may be familiar with) and asks him to go someplace with them they have to know the password. We have even done role playing scenarios to drive the point home.

What should I do if my child is missing?

1. Act immediately.

2. Search your home and check with relatives, neighbors, and friends to try and locate your child.

3. If you cannot find your child, immediately report your child missing to your local law-enforcement officers.

4. Limit access to your home until law-enforcement officers arrive and are able to collect evidence.

5. Give law-enforcement officers all the information they request about your child, and be sure to give them any information that could help in the search.

6. Request that your child's name and identifying information be immediately entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Missing Person File.

7. Call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST® (1-800-843-5678) to find out what resources are available to you.
