Have You Seen Any of These Missing Kids From Texas?
Children and teens go missing in this country every single day. It's a scary and sobering thought. Take a look at the pictures of these teenagers and see if you recognize any of them. I know that a lot of them are runaways, but others are not. The runaways might not realize that there are people out there who love them and want them safely home.
According to the National Center for the Missing and Exploited Children:
In 2015 there were more than 13,000 cases of missing kids.
- 86 percent endangered runaways.
- 10 percent family abductions.
- 2 percent lost, injured or otherwise missing children.
- 1 percent nonfamily abductions.
- 1 percent critically missing young adults, ages 18 to 20.
AMBER Alerts have successfully recovered 822 children, including 30 recoveries credited to the wireless emergency alert program.
This is the latest group of kids out of the hundreds who are listed as missing in the state of Texas alone. Let's see if we can help these kids get safely back home. For a full list of the missing in Texas and in other states click here.
