National Missing Children's Day: Help keep hope alive
missing childrenThe recent recovery of Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight in Cleveland is why we should never give up hope on any missing child. Every story offers hope to the families who still search, that their own children will one day return home. On May 25, National Missing Children’s Day, communities around the country came together to celebrate this message of hope and honor the commitment to help locate and recover missing children by reminding parents and communities that every child deserves a safe childhood.

Get involved to help keep hope alive and honor the missing. Participate in the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) Picture Them Home program by viewing images of missing children to see if you recognize a child. If you are a parent, take an up-to-date, high-quality photo of your child and put it in a safe place. Don’t forget to spend time talking to your children about safety.

Information about missing or exploited children can be reported by calling 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
