Needs Statement

In 2016, there were 465,676 NCIC entries for missing children. According to DPS, 44,956 were from Texas. 1 in 6 of the runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2016 were likely sex trafficking victims. Child sex trafficking impacts girls and boys, all races and economic levels.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children leads the fight against child abduction, abuse, and exploitation - because every child deserves a safe childhood. The Texas Regional Office provides safety education to children, families, schools, and the larger community of Texas. We also provide training, technical assistance and resources to law enforcement personnel and others who investigate crimes committed against children, specifically cases of child sexual exploitation.

Hope is why we're here.

"We've all had that fleeting moment of panic when we realize our child is momentarily out of our sight. For the vast majority of us, everything turns out fine. But for too many families, child abduction and sexual exploitation is all too real. What can we do to help prevent these horrific crimes against our children? What can we do to ensure law enforcement has every resource at its disposal? That's where the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children comes in with proven child safety prevention programs and specialized training for law enforcement. We are all mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles; our children are literally the future of our communities.

"The Texas Regional NCMEC office's support has had a tremendous impact on the Texas Department of Public Safety's (DPS) Interdiction for the Protection of Children program, dedicated to locating missing and exploited children. NCMEC has been instrumental in helping DPS garner national attention and support to bring this training to various law enforcement partners across the country, and ultimately rescue children in danger." - DPS Lt. Derek Prestridge

"Frankly, I am ashamed to admit that I never gave a missing child case much thought because it seemed like something that happened to other people - I was horribly wrong." 2013, my 7-year-old and 11-year-old sons were abducted out of the country, taken away from everything and everyone they know. They were missing for more than a year." The agony of not knowing where your children are, if they are safe, if they are happy, is a feeling that I would not wish on my worst enemy." "It was a long and emotionally painful struggle to find them and bring them home. I wouldn't have survived without the kindness of my friends, my family and the incredible support of the NCMEC team." - Ed Mena (Texas Father)
