Global Missing Children’s Center

Every day, all around the world, children go missing. Our Global Missing Children’s Center aims to protect children around the world from going missing or being abducted by providing resources for governments, law enforcement, NGOs, and families on prevention as well as the appropriate actions to take in the event a child does go missing.

Model Missing Child Framework

In an effort to facilitate more efficient investigation, management, and resolution of missing children cases, a robust, national missing child framework is necessary.
