News Release - Winnipeg Police Service


Winnipeg Police Service

Wednesday, May 25, 2016


Today, May 25, 2016, 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 with these children never found.
It is through the many partnerships the Winnipeg Police Service  Missing Persons Unit has formed that we are able to achieve success in our role of dealing with the complexities surrounding missing children cases.  These include numerous other law enforcement agencies within Manitoba, across Canada and abroad.  It further includes various other agencies such as the entire Media community, The Canadian Centre for Child Protection Centre, Street Reach Winnipeg, numerous Child and Family Services agencies and many others.   We greatly appreciate and extend our gratitude to all of our partners for the role they play in helping us to achieve success and keep children safe.  We also appreciate the role the public has played and continues to play in helping us locate missing children and ensure their safety with your information a vital component of our success.
The Winnipeg Police Service continues to encourage families and guardians to always keep a watchful eye on children in their care, know who their friends are 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.  Specific preventative resources for families and communities wishing to reduce children's risk of being abducted are available and can be reached through the website.
