A New Message From John Walsh & NCMEC:

  
A New Message From John Walsh & NCMEC:

"You’re the only resource your kids have…If you give up, they don’t have a chance.”
These are the courageous words of Colleen Nick. On June 9, 1995 Colleen’s six year-old daughter, Morgan, went to catch lightning bugs at a Little League Baseball game and has not been seen or heard from since.
If Colleen won’t give up on finding Morgan, how can the rest of us?
No matter how much time passes, no matter how many dead ends we hit, we must keep looking. Reunions are possible. Children do come home. And every kid deserves our hardest effort.
Please join the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children today to support our essential work and show parents like Colleen Nick that people like you have not given up on their children.
It wasn’t that long ago when the world watched with teary disbelief as Jaycee Dugard was reunited with her family after being missing for nearly two decades. We were shocked by how this poor girl had been victimized, but overjoyed that she found her way home.
For parents like Colleen Nick this astounding reunion offers hope that someday it will be their baby who is recognized and brought back to their loving arms.
This is essential work. Most people don’t realize that 800,000 children are reported missing every year – or 2,100 each day. But even in these worst of cases, miracles can – and do – happen.
The National Center has played a leading role in many of these cases. I am proud that we have assisted in the recovery of more than 163,330 children, and counting. And our assistance to law enforcement has played a key role in improving child recovery rates from 62% in 1990 to over 97% today.
That is why I am so committed to all of the National Center’s prevention and education programs – and why I hope you will generously support our efforts to never stop looking and never lose hope.
Please join the National Center today and thank you for your vigilance.
For our children,

John Walsh
Co-Founder
P.S. A child should never go missing. Parents should never suffer the agony of not knowing where their child is. Please stand with us in our vigilance to never stop looking by joining the National Center today. Your gifts make a difference!
