Every 40 Seconds Another Child in the USA Goes Missing

By Christopher R Rice


Did you know that the FBI statistics indicate approximately 3,000 children are reported missing daily nationwide!

A child goes missing every 40 seconds in the U.S, over 2,100 per day.
In excess of 800,000 children are reported missing each year.
Another 500,000 go missing without ever being reported.

A Washington State Attorney General’s office showed that among cases involving children abducted and murdered, 74 percent were slain in the first 3 hours.

Every 40 seconds a child goes missing in the USA. Strangers commit more than 53% of child abduction murders. Children as well as the disabled and elderly can disappear at any time and under any circumstance.

The Amber Alert program launched in 1996, named in honor of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman of Texas who was abducted and found murdered has helped recover 492 children as of last year.
