The mission of the NCS is to advocate for and engage in prevention, identification and location efforts on behalf of missing and exploited children.
"Missing" "Taken" "Abduction" " Runaway"
Words that strike fear into parents. Words that send Nevada Child Seekers into action!
Over 8,000 children are reported missing each year in Nevada, and approximately 200 are considered endangered or abducted, according the the Nevada's Missing Children Clearinghouse. Nevada Child Seekers was created in 1985 in response to these alarming statistics to address the plight of missing children in our communities.
As we experience rapid growth in population, so does the need to provide additional help and support to families and law enforcement for the location and reunification of our missing children. Over the years services have expanded to include safety education programs, counseling referrals, support groups and active participation with the Nevada Amber Alert Committee.
