"NEVER ASSUME THAT YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ABDUCTED,
ABUSED, EXPLOITED, OR MISSING!"
2000 children become missing every day, have you seen any of them?
and thank you for taking the time to check out the bannerkids website!
Our purpose is to find missing kids as fast as possible.
There are close to a million children reported missing annually in the United
States alone. Since many are not reported, the actual number of missing children
is believed to be much greater. Obviously, there are many more children missing
in the rest of the world. It is estimated that 200 to 300 children are abducted
by strangers each year in the USA and over 100,000 more children are victims
of an attempted abduction. In addition, there were more than 40,000 adults missing
in the USA last year.
The key factor in finding those who are missing fast is information reported
to Law Enforcement Agencies. You, the 500,000,000 people who surf the internet
daily, can be the EYES and EARS that make Bannerkids work. So, from now on,
we at Bannerkids will call you "The Posse".
We believe that the more people looking for these missing people, the better
the odds of recovering them.
Remember, we are all important to God. At BannerKids, we believe that using the internet
in this way is consistent with God's will that we should love and help one another.
Children belong in the loving arms of their parents, and they need to be returned
as fast as possible.
People seem to fall into three categories: those who make things happen,
those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened! What kind
of person are you?
2001, there were 840,279 missing persons (adults and children) reported to the
police and entered into the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
This represents the smallest number of missing persons reports since 1992 (801,358).
The FBI estimates that 85-90% of missing persons are juveniles. In approximately
725,000 cases (or 2,000 per day) the disappearance of a child/adult was serious
enough that a parent called the police, the police took a report and entered
the report into the NCIC.
The 2001 missing persons reports were down 4.1% from 2000. The total increase
since the passage of the Missing Children's Act in 1982 is 444% (154,341 in
1982 vs. 840,279 in 2001).
The primary NCIC categories in which missing persons reports are entered
"Juvenile" - 651,209 cases, (down 5% from 2000). Police enter most missing
children cases in "Juvenile," including some non family abductions where there
is not evidence of foul play.
"Endangered" - 119,237 cases (a decrease of 1.2% from 2000). Adults and Juveniles
defined as "missing and in the company of another person under circumstances
indicating that his/her physical safely is in danger.
"Involuntary" - 28,765 cases (a decrease of 8.8% from 2000). Adults and juveniles
missing under circumstances indicating that the disappearance was not voluntary (i.e.
abduction or kidnapping).
