National Missing Children’s Day
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan declared May 25, the day that 6-year-old Etan Patz went missing in 1979, as National Missing Children’s Day. Every May 25, we honor children like Etan who are taken or lost from their families and the devastated parents we help when their worst nightmare becomes reality. National Missing Children’s Day also serves as an opportunity to commemorate the missing children we are still searching for, never losing hope that one day they will be reunited with their families.
If you would like to honor the children and families that Child Find serves with a special National Missing Children’s Day gift, click here. Help us bring more missing children home.
National Missing Children’s Day is an annual opportunity to raise awareness on missing children crises in the United States. With about 2,300 children reported missing every day in the United States, this day serves as an important reminder to make child safety and well-being a priority in our communities.
