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.
