National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Webinar: Reporting Children Missing from Care
Here, in Colorado concerns regarding child sex trafficking should be reported to the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1‑844‑264‑5437). Social services or law enforcement will call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children if the child is considered missing from care. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) is excited to offer the following webinar sessions to assist professionals with learning about resources available to you while reporting children missing from care to NCMEC.
This webinar will discuss recent federal legislation, namely the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act, P.L. 113-183 (H.R. 4980), and its mandate for social service agencies to immediately report children missing from foster care to law enforcement and NCMEC. In that context, the webinar will discuss various resources offered by NCMEC to help locate and recover children missing from care, including potential child sex trafficking victims.
