Full Description

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is the leading nonprofit organization in the U.S. working with law enforcement to address the problems of missing and sexually exploited children. Today the work of the organization includes nineteen different Congressional authorizations. In 2014, NCMEC observed its 30th year working on behalf of children.

Today law enforcement is better trained, better prepared and responds more swiftly and effectively than ever before. There is better law and better technology. Parents are more alert and aware. Yet there are still thousands of children who do not make it home each year, and more who fall victim to sexual exploitation.

To report information regarding a missing child call 1-800-THE-LOST. To report the sexual exploitation of a child visit or call 1-800-843-5678.
