If your child is missing:

1. Call your local police immediately. 

2. Give police and law enforcement the vital information about your child, including:

name, height, weight, date of birth, what they were last wearing, when you last saw them,  nicknames, scars and birthmarks.

3.  Ask law enforcement to enter your child's name into the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Missing Person File.  (The National Child Search Assistance Act of 1990 mandates an immediate police report and NCIC entry in every case of a missing child.)

4.  Call Child Find of America, toll-free, at
1-800-I-AM-LOST (1-800-426-5678). 
Child Find's location staff will register your child with us, distribute posters, and begin investigating your missing child case.
