Never Underestimate The Power of Facebook to Find a Missing Child!

It is so rewarding when we learn that our efforts were instrumental in the recovery of a missing child!

We spoke to a searching family member today, who greatly appreciated Child Quest's help in the search for their daughter. They said "a great weight has been lifted from our shoulders today” and “we couldn’t have done it without the flyers Child Quest created and quickly updated whenever new information came in.”  The family also appreciated Child Quest's collaboration with Law Enforcement, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, State Missing Children Clearinghouses, and other missing children organizations and advocates across the country.

According to the family, a store clerk 800 miles from their home recognized the missing child from a Child Quest flyer that was widely distributed across the U.S. and Canada via our vast network of Facebook friends. Law Enforcement was contacted, a search ensued, and the missing 15 year old was located with a 32 year old male at a nearby motel.

All of us at Child Quest would like to extend a BIG thanks to all of our Facebook friends that print and/or share our flyers with your friends.  Together we are making a difference!

Founded in 1990, Child Quest International is a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation dedicated to the protection and recovery of missing, abused and exploited children. Funded through individual and corporate donations, grants, and fundraising events, Child Quest never charges a fee to law enforcement or searching families.  Child Quest Interntational is Keeping Hope Alive.
