Time is an abducted child’s worst enemy. Seventy-four percent of abducted children who are murdered are killed within three hours of their abduction. It takes, on the average, two hours for a parent to report a child missing. This gives responders only one hour to get an investigation up and running in an attempt to locate and recover the child alive. Investigating Missing Children Cases: A Guide for First Responders and Investigators provides a solid training guide on missing children investigative techniques, enabling law enforcement professionals to respond confidently with a plan of action that offers the best possible chance for a positive outcome. The book provides law enforcement agencies with the most current information available to guide them through a missing or runaway child dispatch. It is designed to help investigators respond quickly, expeditiously evaluate the situation, conduct an Endangerment Risk Assessment (ERA) of the child, and commence a thorough, organized investigation—starting from the moment the police are contacted. By following the guidelines in this book, those tasked with these cases can make the best possible decisions in the shortest amount of time. The protocols and methodologies presented are based on personal police experience and statistical evidence from research and studies gathered from thousands of runaway and missing children cases. Details on those studies and their findings are provided in the appendix. Time is of the essence in missing children cases. Make every second count.

Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children. The United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations – losing on average between four and seven children every day to child abuse and neglect. The WHO reports that over 40 million children, below the age of 15, are subjected to child abuse each year. Domestic violence in the home increases that risk threefold.

There are some cases of missing children that do not meet the threshold for the issuance of an AMBER Alert. The same concern applies to missing persons older than 18, who fall outside AMBER Alert's purview. The EMA was crafted in 2005 to fill this gap. This report describes how a community can establish a task force to create an EMA plan, which creates voluntary partnerships to recover missing persons who do not fit the AMBER Alert criteria but who may be in danger. EMAs help law enforcement notify the general public that someone is missing and ultimately save lives. This guide provides directions for developing, activating, and sustaining an EMA plan and includes sample plans and press releases. A print on demand report.
