National Missing Chilren’s Day: Billboard launches for missing S.A. girl
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.
Thursday is National Missing Children’s day, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is hoping everyone will “Rock One Sock”.
In 2015, there were 460,699. There does not have to be a ransom demand, and the child does not have to cross the state lines or be missing for 24 hours. “I ask our communities to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity or information that could help bring a child back home”, said Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. Then, challenge two friends to do the same or donate to continue to spread awareness about finding missing children. The campaign hopes to usher in that same sense of hope and inspiration in finding missing children.
Garcia went missing from her home last June. “Research indicates the quicker the reporting of the disappearance or abduction, the more likely the successful outcome in returning the child unharmed”, FBI New Orleans wrote in a statement. The new billboard campaign enables NCMEC to reach a broad audience across Los Angeles by distributing photos of the missing children in targeted areas that can aid local law enforcement with a search.
Thursday is National Missing Children’s Day, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement and community partners will be raising awareness about efforts to keep children safe.
