As a parent, having your child go missing is one of the scariest things that can happen to you. What’s even worse is that it can be difficult to get the help you need to recover a missing child, especially if you don’t have a lot of money. Fortunately, The Committee for Missing Children, Inc. is here to help by advocating for parents of missing children and helping every child get back home safely.

Recover a Missing Child

Most of the time, a missing child is abducted by one of their parents or another close family member. When a child goes missing, the first thing you should do is contact law enforcement to notify them. If you believe your child has been abducted by your spouse or another family member, make sure you tell the police any information you may have that can help them locate that person. You can also ask the police if they would be willing to put out a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) bulletin.

Providing a recent photo of your child is also a helpful step in locating missing children. If you don’t have a photo on hand, schools typically keep children’s class pictures for records, so they may be able to provide a copy of a photo you can use to put up flyers.

Casting a Wide Net

When it comes to recovering a missing child, casting a wide net is important. The Committee for Missing Children, Inc. is familiar with parental kidnappings and missing children in Louisiana, which means we know what information it takes to recover a missing child. We can start by helping you gather all the information you need to provide to law enforcement, including things like photos, information about potential abductors, and more.

We cover all the bases when it comes to missing children, contacting missing children advocacy groups to spread the word about missing children in Louisiana. Plus, we may be able to help cover expenses such as taxis, hotels, flights, and more, to relieve the financial burden of fighting for your rights to reunite with your child.

Tireless Advocacy for Child Protection

At The Committee for Missing Children, Inc., we do more than just help parents reunite with missing children. We advocate for parents to make sure they have the rights they need to protect their children. In situations of parental kidnapping, it can be tough for one parent to recover a missing child from the other. We make sure you have the tools you need to protect yourself and your children, plus we maintain a massive database of information that helps missing children reunite with the left-behind parent.
