International Missing Children Day

May 25th is International Missing Children day.

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), more than 7,000 reports of disappearances were received in 2017 in Quebec, which ranks 4th in the country.

Runaways account for the majority of these disappearances, while 90% of missing children are found within days of their disappearance. That means that 10% go missing for weeks, even months and sometimes years. As a mother and step-mother, this makes my stomach turn.
“As the days get longer and with temperature on the rise, our children will be spending more time outdoors. Take a moment to remind your child the importance of always using the buddy system and be in the company of a friend when playing outside or when walking from one location to the next. …” – Missing Children Network
We can keep our eyes open for these missing kids:
