The ADAMSM Program
Getting a child’s photo into the public eye is a critical step in the effort to recover a missing child. To meet this challenge LexisNexis® partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® to develop the Automated Delivery of Alerts on Missing Children Program, commonly known as the ADAMSM Program.
This program, operating since 2000, uses fax technology to distribute missing child posters to law enforcement, news media, schools, businesses, medical centers and other recipients within a specific geographic search area.
Through this partnership NCMEC sends a poster with a photo and information about a missing child incident to ADAM, including a geographic area believed to be the search target. ADAM examines a database of all possible recipients of the NCMEC poster and finds those within a designated mile radius of the search area. ADAM then transmits the poster to targeted recipients.
Through Nov. 2013 more than 139 missing children have been recovered through this program.
