Recover a Missing Child in Tennessee

Children go missing more often than you might think, whether that’s the result of a parent without custody abducting a child or a child running away. As a left-behind parent, it can be hard to get the help you need to locate your child while you’re in a fragile emotional state. With the help of The Committee for Missing Children, you can get access to crucial resources and get the help you need to bring your child home safely.

If your child has recently run away or been abducted by another parent or individual, The Committee for Missing Children has the resources to help. The Committee for Missing Children helps left-behind parents find their missing child or children and reunite with them, regardless of why that child went missing. We know how hard it is to deal with a missing child, so we make sure you’ve got access to the resources you need to locate and reunite with your child in Tennessee.

Casting a Wide Net

When it comes to locating missing children, casting a wide net is the most important thing to do. You need to make sure law enforcement agencies are aware of a missing child as soon as that child has gone missing. Not only do you need to keep local law enforcement agencies up to speed, but you also need to make sure missing children are entered into the proper databases so there can be a national search effort.

At The Committee for Missing Children, we can help you cast a wide net to maximize the odds of locating your missing child. By offering guidance and taking advantage of the resources that are available on the internet, we can help you simplify the search for your missing child.
