THE REAL FACTS ON MISSING KIDS
Growing up my mother was constantly reminding me to stay with her in stores and to be aware of my surroundings. She basically stamped it on my brain. I always thought the main reason for kids going missing was because they were kidnapped but statistics show there are several different reasons a child may go missing.
According to childfindofamerica.com here are some reasons children go missing;
Benign reasons (i.e. misunderstandings)
Ran away/thrown away
Lost, stranded, or injured
Many Children are never even reported missing which makes it very difficult to get a true count of home many missing children there are in the United States each year.
