International Missing Children’s Day 2022

International Missing Children’s Day is an awareness event that is observed annually on 25th May. This day aims to place a spotlight on the issue of child abduction, educate parents on safeguarding measures to protect their children as well as honour those who have never been found and celebrate those who have. 

Key Points:

  • This awareness event is run in collaboration with the Global Missing Children’s Network. The network, which was formed in 1998, has 23 member countries, where all connect to share information and best practice, working towards how to improve the effectiveness and success rate of missing children investigations.
  • Missing Children’s Day began as an observance in the USA in the year 1983. 
  • This date was chosen when a 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared on 25th May 1979 from New York City.
