We need your help, too, in rescuing the many kids who remain far from home today. Please take a minute to look at all the faces above and on our Kidnappings and Missing Persons webpage and see if you can identify Crystal, Jaliek, Rolando, or any of the other children listed with their stories.
Also take a look at the faces of the children who have been kidnapped by a parent—Mohammad Hussain Metla, Jr. and the many other kids.
And we hope you’ll visit our Violent Crimes Against Children page to learn all you can about what a dangerous world it can be for our kids…and our Resources for Parents page to learn how to protect them in today’s world.
Last: Join us in honoring the law enforcement officers and others recognized as part of National Missing Children’s Day, including FBI Special Agent John D. Wydra, Jr. of our Charlotte Division. Our partners at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children also recognized a dozen FBI employees for going “above and beyond the call of duty for safely recovering missing child or successfully resolving a child sexual exploitation case.”
Note: The children pictured here may have been located since the above information was posted on this website. Please check our Wanted by the FBI webpage for up-to-date information.
