Hundreds of thousands of children are reported missing every year in the United States.
Many children are taken by family members, though some are stranger abductions.
Sometimes they’re missing for years and in some cases the children are never found.
The Commission on Missing and Exploited Children has been serving our community for more than two decades.
Their purpose is to help keep children safe, especially in a time when we’ve seen an increase in Amber Alerts.
Sgt. Len Edwards talked with us about how the agency operates.
