Missing Child

If Your Child is Missing

  • Immediately report your child missing to local law enforcement by calling 9-1-1. There is no 24-hour rule.
  • Limit access to your home until law enforcement officials have arrived
  • Give law enforcement officers your child’s Identification Kit, if you have one
