Missing children website re-launches in advance of ‘International Missing Children’s Day 2012’

News article published on: 20th June 2012

An official website to help find missing and abducted children has been relaunched by the police’s specialist child protection agency.

The site www.missingkids.co.uk will be used by police forces to circulate up-to-date photographs and information about children who have been missing for any period of time.

The website which is run by the ‘Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre’ (Ceop) will allow members of the general public to download information about missing children.

Mark Freedman, partner in the family department at Osbornes solicitorscomments:

“A Parent who knows that their child has or is under threat of being taken without consent by the other parent does have recourse to legal help. If however a child does go missing this is much needed and will be an invaluable tool in getting the public’s help to hopefully find such children.”

Lady Catherine Meyer, founder and chief executive of Pact said “with over 130,000 children going missing in the UK each year – more than one every five minutes… this website is a major breakthrough in Pact’s decade-long campaign to reform the way we tackle this issue”.

A reception hosted by the Home Secretary Theresa May will be held at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday to mark International Missing Children’s Day.
