National Missing Children’s Day

Unfortunately, not all lost children are found quickly, and some never make it home.


On National Missing Children’s Day, the FBI asks the public for help in locating any of the victims pictured here from our Kidnapping and Missing Person webpage.

The FBI also has several programs in place to educate both parents and children about the dangers posed by predators in person and online and to recover missing and endangered children should they be taken.

Through the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Teams, Innocence Lost National Initiative, Innocent Images National Initiative, annual Operation Cross Country, Office for Victim Assistance, Child Exploitation Task Forces, and numerous community outreach initiatives, the FBI and law enforcement partners are working to keep the most vulnerable among us safe and secure.
