Keep Hope Alive for Families

Missing Children's Day

We never give up hope on any missing child no matter how long they have been missing.

Every story offers hope to the families who are still searching, that their own children will one day come home.

National Missing Children's Day, May 25, celebrates this message of hope and honors the commitment to help locate and recover missing children by reminding parents and communities that every child deserves a safe childhood.

Help us keep hope alive. We are asking you to help honor National Missing Children's Day by getting involved.

What you can do:

Picture them home

Throughout the month of May help us Picture Them Home.

First, take the time to really look at the pictures of missing children you see.

Second, if you are a parent, make sure you maintain an up-to-date good quality picture of your child.

Third, help distribute a picture of a missing child.
