Lost Child Advice

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children encourages people to be alert and report suspicious situations regarding missing and exploited children.  this article is to give you advice on What Should You Do If You find A Lost Child

NCMEC teaches children to seek out low risk adults if they become separated from their parent or guardian and need assistance. These individuals are identified as a uniformed police or security officer, a store salesperson wearing a name-tag, an information booth employee wearing a name-tag, or a mother with children.

But what if you’re a regular citizen?

  • NCMEC offers the tips noted below if you see a child who appears lost.
  • Don’t be afraid to get involved.
  • Comfort the child but use restraint in physically touching the child.
  • If the child is able to speak, ask if they’re lost or where their mother/father is.
  • Refrain from requesting too much personal information, since children are taught not to give out this information to people they don’t know.
  • If you have a cellular phone, contact authorities and report the incident.
  • Try to find someone nearby in a position of authority who can assist.
  • Do not take the child far from the immediate location.
  • Do not put the child in your car and drive off seeking help.
  • Ask passers-by to assist.
  • Wait with the child until help arrives.
