Missing and abducted children - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 85-002-X19980028260


Canadian children are reported missing more often than we would like to believe. According to data released by the RCMP, approximately 56,000 children were reported missing in 1996, an average of 153 children a day. A child not returning from school at the normal time, a child wandering off without telling the parent, or a child not being returned after a scheduled visit with a parent or family member - any missing child is of great concern to the searching parent(s) and to society as a whole.
