95 per cent of located Canadian children did not stray from their own city
MissingKids.ca urges the public to review cases in their community on Missing Children’s Day to help bring children home
For Immediate Release
Winnipeg, Canada — As 95 per cent of the located children in the MissingKids.ca database were found in their own city, today, on Missing Children’s Day, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) is underscoring the integral role community engagement plays in bringing missing and abducted children home.
According to MissingKids.ca, Canada’s missing children resource centre, nearly 30,000 Canadian children are reported missing to police each year.
For every call to the public to help find missing children, there are hundreds that are solved behind the scenes. If a law enforcement agency does release a public advisory about a missing kid, it’s because they truly believe that the public can assist in finding their location.
Spreading the word about missing children is the easiest way to contribute to the search; repost missing children posters online, share news articles and podcasts about missing kids, and engage with local law enforcement on social media.
