National Missing Children Day

Date When : Always on May 25

National Missing Children Day is your chance to play a part in finding missing and exploited children. There's a whole lot of reasons why a child goes missing. And, none of them are good.

Unfortunately, child abductions can happen to any child, any family. No one is immune to child predators. We don't say this to scare you. We say it to help promote awareness and education to help you guard against it. 

 

Did you know? The U.S. Department of Justice estimates more than 50,000 children are victims of non-family abductions annually.

What you can do:

  • Review and enforce child protection and safety awareness regularly with your children.
  • Be ever vigilant
  • Establish neighborhood watch groups
  • Become involved
  • Report anything suspicious...immediately.
  • Created and maintain records of your children... photos, fingerprints.


Origin of National Missing Children Day:

The roots of National Missing Children's Day goes back to the 1970s and 1980s. A number of high profile child abductions revealed no organized plans and efforts to find missing children. The first case was Etan Patz who disappeared from a New York City street while on his way to school, on May 25, 1979.

In 1983 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 National Missing Children’s Day. Since then, U.S. presidents have annually marked this day.
