If Your Child is Missing


The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) - The Nation's Resource Center for Child Protection 1-800-THE-LOST

"Act immediately if you believe that your child is missing.
• If your child is missing from home, search the house checking closets, piles of laundry, in and under beds, inside old refrigerators—wherever a child may crawl or hide.
• If you still cannot find your child, immediately call your local law-enforcement agency.
• If your child disappears in a store, notify the store manager or security office. Then immediately call your local law-enforcement agency. Many stores have a Code Adam plan of action—if a child is missing in the store, employees immediately mobilize to look for the missing child.
• When you call law enforcement, provide your child's name, date of birth, height, weight, and any other unique identifiers such as eyeglasses and braces. Tell them when you noticed that your child was missing and what clothing he or she was wearing.
• Request that your child's name and identifying information be immediately entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Missing Person File.
• After you have reported your child missing to law enforcement, call the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on our toll-free telephone number, 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678). If your computer is equipped with a microphone and speakers you may talk to one of our Hotline operators via the Internet "

Stop It Now!, a national nonprofit organization, created a ground-breaking public health approach to prevent the perpetration of child sexual abuse. Since 1992, Stop It Now!'s public policy, public education, and research programs have protected our children by emphasizing adult and community responsibility. These programs reach out to adults who are concerned about inappropriate sexualized behavior in another adult, adolescent, or child, and to adults who are concerned about their own thoughts or behaviors.

"Child sexual abuse is sexual activity with a child by an adult, an adolescent, or an older child. When any adult engages in sexual activity with a child, that is child sexual abuse. It is a crime in all 50 states. Look in the section called "Warning Signs" for a listing of both touching and non-touching sexual behaviors that are considered sexual abuse. When sexual activity involves another child or an adolescent, it is not always so clear. Some kinds of sexual behavior among children might be natural explorations rather than abuse. Look at the checklists in the section called "Warning Signs" for help in figuring out whether the behavior you see is sexual abuse between children."
