A child is reported missing every 2 minutes in the EU.

But who are these missing children? Over 50% of missing children cases reported to the 116 000 missing children hotline network are those of children running away from home or care institutions, another 37% are of children abducted by a parent while 1% of missing children cases are those of unaccompanied migrant children and criminal abductions respectively. 25% of these cases involve a cross-border element and therefore require coordinated cross border cooperation and support. This is the role played by Missing Children Europe. Missing Children Europe and its members ensure that support is available to missing children and their families across borders 24/7.

Missing Children Europe is the European federation for missing and sexually exploited children representing 30 grassroots NGOs in 24 countries in Europe who work directly with missing children and their families. This International Missing Children's day, help protect missing children by saving the European missing children hotline number- 116 000 - in your phone. This hotline provides free, professional support to children and families facing child disappearances 24/7.

Together, we can create a safer Europe for children.
