Having to report a missing child to law enforcement is never an easy thing to do. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is an organization that assists law enforcement, families and the professionals who serve them with cases of missing and exploited children. Since 1984, the national hotline for NCMEC has received more than 4.2 million calls. The NCMEC has also assisted in the recovery of over 222,000 missing children in the same time frame.
According to recent FBI statistics, the number of children who go missing has been decreasing year-over-year, with over 6,000 fewer children missing in 2015 than 2014. While this is welcomed news, there is still much more that can be done to help get these numbers as low as possible.
