Lead Me Home's security settings and rules
Hi everyone :)

From now until further notice, all prospective users must submit a request to join this community. I had hoped to make this an open and welcoming community, but have recently received several comments and posts which I consider harrassment from a user. Unfortunately, this user's behavior means extra work for everyone else. However, he is the only person the higher security settings are meant to exclude. Anyone willing to obey the rules of this community is more than welcome to join.

I suppose now is a wonderful time to post the rules :) These rules are subject to change at any time.

1. This community aims to help children who are in danger by releasing information to the public, in hopes that someone may know something which can lead authorities to the child. Users of this community pledge to use the information on this website for that purpose only. Anyone found using the children's images or information for any other purpose will immediately be banned.

2. Information on this site comes from a variety of places and may be copyrighted. Please do not post any information here without properly crediting your sources. If you do not list a source, your post may be deleted.

3. This community is for discussions about missing children cases. While some off topic chat may be acceptable, please try to stay with the topic at hand. Off topic discussions which are lengthy or interruptive may be deleted.

4. Users are expected to treat one another respectfully. Abuse and flame wars will never be tolerated.

5. Children in danger need as much help as possible, so please help me make this community an enjoyable and meaningful place for anyone who wants to join. This means that vulgarity, cursing, and sexual material, as well as anything else along these lines that might make others feel unwelcome, will not be tolerated and might result in your post being deleted. Users who consistently violate this rule will be banned.

6. This community deals with sensitive and potentially difficult information. Material here may be inappropriate for children under thirteen years of age. Any child who joins this community is promising that s/he has a parent or guardian's permission to do so.

Thank you for your cooperation and welcome to this community :)

Welcome to Lead Me Home!
Hi everyone and welcome to the Live Journal Community for Lead Me Home!

The primary goal of Lead Me Home, and thus of this community as well, is to introduce people to the plight of missing and abducted children. The children featured on this community and on the website have been reported missing and are thus in danger. Some are victims of stranger abductions, while others have been taken by noncustodial family members, run away, or have simply disappeared. All of them need your help to make it home.

If you recognize any child featured here, please call 1-800-the-lost, which is the phone number for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, or 911. If you want to learn more about missing children, please visit the following websites:
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, The Polly Klaas Foundation, Rino Kids, The Child Seek Network.

Two new children will be featured on Lead Me Home every week, on Thursday afternoon/evenings. The first child will be a child abducted within the past five years who is still believed to be in the United States. The second child will be a child missing longer than five years or who has been taken out of the country. Since this community was created after the website, I have already featured nearly two hundred children. Those who are still missing will be listed below, in the order that they were featured. I will also post articles containing information about the featured children. Amber Alert children will be featured as soon as I receive word of the alert. Images and information about the kids can be found at the Lead Me Home website.

As always, the photos are the property of the children's families. All published articles are owned by the author or their publisher.
