Tireless Advocacy for Child Protection

In the past, there have been several laws that make it difficult to locate missing children. One law may contradict another, creating legal hurdles that you have to overcome while dealing with the stress of a missing child. The Committee for Missing Children advocates tirelessly to protect children and help left-behind parents in the search for their missing children. We support law enforcement when it comes to getting missing children back home, so we have relationships with law enforcement everywhere.

The Committee for Missing Children works in all 50 states to make sure parents can reunite with missing children. By working with local law enforcement in Oregon and the neighboring states, The Committee for Missing Children is able to cast a wide net that makes it easier for you to find a missing child.
