PETITION FOR NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR MISSING CHILDREN


We call on the United States Department of Justice, United States Congress, Legislators and House of Representatives to review current national guidelines and requirements for the reporting and investigation of all missing children cases. We kindly request a national standard for all jurisdictions to ensure equal investigation and reporting for all missing children cases.

WE REQUEST THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE CURRENT PROCESSES.

Any child under the age of 18 who goes missing, regardless of circumstances, should be classified immediately as "ENDANGERED MISSING" until determined
otherwise through thorough investigation.

An Alert System should be designed and implemented similar to the Amber Alert system to alert the general public of missing children who do not
meet the Amber Alert criteria.

A report of a missing child should be taken immediately with no required or requested waiting period and an investigation should be started immediately.

An organized search should be conducted by law enforcement immediately, including search dogs (when available) and grid searches.

Last known location of child should be thoroughly searched immediately, with search/cadaver dogs when available.

Local law enforcement should be required to submit the missing information immediately to NamUS (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System) AND
NCMEC (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children)

RUNAWAY Status should be eliminated as a reported status to ensure equal investigation and attention to all missing children cases.
