What do you do if your child goes missing?

Naturally, you'll want to call local law enforcement as soon as possible. When you do, make sure you give them as many identifying traits as possible, like height, weight, age, name, and a description of what they're wearing and who they were last seen with. After your call with law enforcement, call the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
