Kidnapping and missing children are on the rise every day:
In 2018 NCMEC assisted law enforcement and families with more than 25,000 cases of missing children.
- 92 percent endangered runaways.
- 4 percent family abductions.
- 3 percent critically missing young adults, ages 18 to 20.
- Less than 1 percent nonfamily abductions.
- 1 percent lost, injured or otherwise missing children.
Of the more than 23,500 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2018, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking.
NCMEC also participates in the AMBER Alert Program, a voluntary partnership between broadcasters, transportation agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the wireless industry to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. NCMEC serves as the secondary distributor of these alerts and, to date, 967 children have been successfully recovered as a result of the AMBER Alert program, including 58 recoveries credited to the wireless emergency alert program.1
NCMEC’s forensic artists have age-progressed more than 6,800 images of long-term missing children and created more than 550 facial reconstructions for unidentified deceased children. NCMEC is currently assisting with more than 698 cases of unidentified children’s remains, and so far has assisted in 146 identifications.
Team Adam, which provides rapid, on-site assistance in cases of critically missing children, has deployed more than 1,100 times.2 The program was named after Adam Walsh, the abducted and murdered son of NCMEC co-founders John and Revé Walsh.
Team Adam also provides technical assistance and outreach regarding long-term missing child cases and has assisted families, communities, criminal justice, and forensic professionals more than 10,800 times.3
NCMEC has analyzed more than 16,200 attempted child abductions to identify trends and help develop safety tips for families.
