Take 25, a campaign of the

National Center For Missing & Exploited Children

National Center for

Missing and Exploited Children

A private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization

NCMEC’s mission is to help find missing children; help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation; and assist victims of child abduction and sexual exploitation, their families, and the professionals who serve them

The Issue of Missing Children

Nearly 800,000 children are reported to law enforcement as missing each year

More than 2,000 children are reported as missing to law enforcement every day

More than 200,000 of these children are victims of family abductions each year

More than 58,000 of these children are victims of non-family abduction each year

Attempted Abductions

Out of over 7,000 confirmed attempted abductions, analysis shows…

  • 69% of victims are female
  • 41 % are between the ages of 10-14
  • 35% occur while a child is walking along to/from school, the school bus or riding a bicycle
  • 35% occur between the hours of 2pm through 7pm on a weekday
  • Suspects: 96% are male, 48% are white
  • 72 % involve a vehicle

Data from 7,000 + incidents known to NCMEC from February 1,2005 through January 31, 2012

The Good News

Of the confirmed incidents…

  • 53% walked or ran away from the suspect and had no physical contact
  • 28% reported some type of reaction such as yelling, kicking, pulling away, or otherwise attracting attention
  • 19% involved either a Good Samaritan or parent becoming involved in rescuing the child
Communication is Key

Regular conversations create a second nature awareness for children and youth

Build trust

Create teachable moments for children and youth

Encourage positive communication with students and youth
