How can I help find missing children?
I'm doing research for becoming a mystery writer, having loved the current popular mystery dramas in books, on TV, and in the movies. One book I'm reading pointed me to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).
Below is the answer to this very important question, from the FAQs and Statistics page:
The best way to help National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is to take the time to look at the photographs of missing children in the many venues, including ADVO postcards, at Wal-Mart® stores, in federal buildings, and report any information about those children to NCMEC’s toll-free Hotline 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678). You can also help by keeping up-to-date photographs of your own children. After all, one out of six of the children featured in this NCMEC's photo distribution program has been recovered as a direct result.Here are some encouraging Missing Children Success Stories.
