It's a sad situation to think about when a family is missing one of their own children. Data from the FBI shows that 337,195 children went missing in the year of 2021, which is simply way too many missing children in the United States.

Texas also unfortunately holds the distinction for having the most missing child in the nation. According to data, Texas had 3,588 missing in the year of 2020 alone. With all this data, it seems daunting for any one individual to make sure a child is returned home safely to their family.

That's why there are organizations that have been established that help in the finding and returning of a child lost from home.

The National Center For Missing And Exploited Children

The Center was first founded in 1984. According the organization's website, the non-profit was created to "provide a coordinated, national response to problems relating to missing and exploited children." The organization works throughout the nation as well, having 3 offices in certain states.

One of those states is none other than Texas. The offices, located in Austin, assist Texas Law enforcement and various other entities that keep children in the Lone Star state safe and sound.

While everything is done to ensure children are safe, young children sadly disappear. The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children has a database of children that go missing located here.
