The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization. NCMEC works with families, victims, private industry, law enforcement, and the public to assist with preventing child abductions, recovering missing children, and providing services to deter and combat child sexual exploitation.
Each one of these children is at risk for exploitation and even worse. They are someone's child, grandchild, sister, brother, and the reason someone gets out of bed each day.
Children can easily be preyed upon by those with bad and even deadly intentions whether they ran away or were lured away by a stranger online.
