Missing Children Fast Facts

"Here is some background information about missing children in the United States. There are several different types of missing children: runaways, family abductions, lost or "thrown away," and non-family abductions. Recent advances in technology, communications through public alerts, and greater cooperation from law enforcement have helped solve many cases quickly.

Statistics: An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year. (NCMEC)

A study published by the Department of Justice in 2002 reported that of the 797,500 children reported missing in a one-year period, 203,900 were abducted by family members and 58,200 were abducted by non-relatives. 115 were classified as being taken by a stranger."
