Help fight child abduction and sexual exploitation

by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Vetted since 2009


Our mission: To help law enforcement find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent future victimization. As the nonprofit leading the fight to keep children safer from abduction and sexual exploitation, NCMEC is dedicated to the victims of these crimes and their families. Co-founded in 1984 by missing child advocates John and Reve Walsh after their son Adam's abduction and murder, NCMEC's role has grown to respond to evolving threats against our nation's children.

While NCMEC and the families and law enforcement it supports have seen amazing progress in child safety over the years, there is still more work to do. With more than 460,000 reports of missing children in the United States in a single year and a rise in cases of child sexual exploitation, the need for NCMEC's services continues to grow.


At no cost to law enforcement or families, NCMEC offers extensive resources in cases of missing and exploited children that include emotional and reunification assistance for families, the distribution of billions of missing child posters and trained analysts and forensic artists drawing on decades of experience to help stop these crimes before they happen and to help people be prepared when they do. NCMEC provides free education for law enforcement, families and children.

Long-Term Impact

When more families and law enforcement have access to the resources that NCMEC provides, families will be better educated about the risks their children face, law enforcement will have more tools at their disposal, more missing children will come home safely and more children will have the childhoods they deserve, free from victimization.
