INTERNATIONAL MISSING CHILDREN'S DAY

May 25, 2017 is "Missing Children's Day" in Canada, as declared by the Solicitor General in 1986.  Every year thousands of Canadian children are reported missing.  Thankfully, the majority of these children are safely recovered but unfortunately some cases remain open for years and these children are never found.

Through our many partnerships, the Winnipeg Police Service - Missing Persons Unit has been able to achieve success dealing with the complexities surrounding missing children cases.  These include numerous other law enforcement agencies within Manitoba, across Canada and abroad, including the Media community, The Canadian Centre for Child Protection Centre, Street Reach Winnipeg, numerous Child and Family Services agencies and many others.   We extend our gratitude to all of our partners for helping us keep children safe.  We appreciate the vital role the public has played and continues to play in helping us locate missing children and ensure their safety.

The Winnipeg Police Service encourages families and guardians to always keep a watchful eye on children in their care, know who their friends are and where they live, and engage in discussions with them on personal safety issues.  It is further important to have recent photographs readily available of your children in the event they suddenly go missing.

The potential for an abduction of a child can create real fear and anxiety for families and loved ones.  Preventative resources for families and communities are available and can be obtained through the website: MissingKids.ca.

The Winnipeg Police Service Missing Persons Unit want to extend our thoughts to those families with missing loved ones. 



In support of International Missing Children's Day, investigators have put together a short video message reminding parents to put kids first. It can be viewed on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/F2DPneMFKIg
