Missing Children, State Care, and Child Sex Trafficking: Engaging the Judiciary in Building a Collaborative Response

Missing Children, State Care, and Child Sex Trafficking

Growing understanding of the links between child welfare or juvenile justice involvement, domestic child sex trafficking, and children who run away or go missing from court ordered placements has led to the question:“What steps can a judge take when a child runs away or goes missing from care?” This technical assistance brief is intended to educate judges about steps to be taken to assist in the location and recovery efforts for children missing from care by ensuring the legal guardians, social workers, and child advocates within child serving agencies are aware of and engage assistance from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on behalf of these endangered missing children.
