Did you read the title? We think that sounds CRAZY and have decided to do something about it!
In the mean-time, kids are missing and we need to improve every aspect of how we help find them.
Social media has been both a boon and bane in the search and rescue process. Current missing child alerts on social media platforms have no place to provide current status or updates. No reliable and predictable place for people to go and find out the latest on any particular case (there are many). This confusion ensures that a lot of unguided good intention goes to waste as people are spending time sharing alerts that don’t need it which takes away from the child who does.
Focus on better ways of providing up-to-date information on missing children in a standard way.
You will start to see The Lassy Project sharing missing children on our facebook page. These alerts will always lead back to a post that will include current status, updates, and where to report information. Keep in mind that for every alert you see there are dozens of alerts you don’t see. Visit our blog dedicated to missing children and share cases near you with confidence. When people have questions about a missing child, the answers are now a click away.
