INTERNATIONAL MISSING CHILDREN'S DAY 


 

Today, May 25, 2018 is Missing Children's Day.  Every year thousands of children are reported missing. Thankfully, the majority of these children are safely located 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 partnerships within our service such as Ground Search and Rescue and Air 1, numerous other law enforcement agencies within Manitoba, across Canada and abroad.  It includes various other agencies such as the entire Media community, The Canadian Centre for Child Protection, Street Reach Winnipeg, Child and Family Services 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 vital role the public has played and continues to play in helping us locate missing children and ensure their safety.
   
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 what social media they are using.  It is further important to have recent photographs readily available of your children in the event they suddenly go missing.
   
Through education and partnership, we hope to bring all Missing Children home safely.
