Did you know that two young people under the age of 18 are reported missing every hour in Australia?
That’s 48 children and young people every day – roughly two classrooms of kids. And that’s just in Australia.
International Missing Children’s Day is marked each year on 25 May and is a day for us all to think about the children who are missing, to remember those precious lives that have been victims of crime and to celebrate those children who have managed to find their way home.
Keeping children safe is a shared responsibility. You can help to bring missing children home in a number of ways:
You can also visit the International Missing Children’s Day Facebook page and share alerts, news and links of missing children.
Help Bring Them Home is the global campaign led by the Australian Federal Police through the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre and in partnership with the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children. The Global Missing Children's Network has 22 member countries.
Together, we can all help bring them home.
