Missing Children Organizations & Websites
There are thousands of missing children organizations out there... but which one do you need? This is my personal list of the best (and official) organizations, programs and websites available.
If you think there is a website or organization I should add, please
let me know!
In the meantime, I hope this list helps you find what you need.
Programs to Prevent Missing Children
I'm constantly on the lookout for quality programs (that actually work) to prevent kids from going missing. There are many great child safety organizations out there, but not many proven to keep kids from going missing.
Child Shield USAMore to come as I find them....
This program is actually proven to prevent kids from going missing. They have a guaranteed emergency response if your child does go missing, and they have a recovery rate of 100%! I haven't found this anywhere else.
Organizations That Help Find Missing Kids
This list coming soon...
Missing Children Clearinghouse
What is a clearinghouse? By basic definition, its main purpose is to distribute information and assistance.
A missing children clearinghouse gives parents and professionals information that can help find and/or prevent kids from going missing or getting molested.
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC)Canada
This is the official missing children’s clearing house for the United States. They fight child pornography, trafficking, child sexual abuse, and the missing kids epidemic.

This is the national clearinghouse for missing children in Canada. They also provide educational materials to help parents find missing children and ideas to help prevent it from happening.
Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP)
The CEOP is heading the national missing children’s services for the UK. If you need to make an appeal, contact the police then refer to them. They provide police and parents with educational materials as well.

They handle missing children cases and coordinate the Child Rescue Alerts (CRA) for the United Kingdom. The CRA is very similar to the Amber Alert used in the USA and Canada.
