Sign4l

When every second counts

In the event that a child gets lost in a public area, on their way home or, possibly even disappearing altogether, a complete and up-to-date description of the child can save valuable time and will allow law enforcement to respond more quickly in initiating searches for the missing child.

Thanks to a generous grant by Telus Community Board, the Missing Children’s Network created Sign4l, an application that is available free of charge on most Apple and Android smartphones. Sign4l allows parents to store up-to-date photos and vital physical descriptions of their child which they can then instantly email or text to the relevant authorities, allowing them to save time in the event of an emergency.

The information that is saved by parents on their child is not stored in any database. Only parents or guardians will be able to access their children’s data sheet.

Parents can also rely on the reminder function, which varies according to the age of the child, allowing them to update their child’s profile at any time in the application. SIGN4L also includes safety tips for children as well as the 4 crucial steps to follow in the moments following the disappearance of a child.

One year ago today, we launched SHINE, a program tailored for preteens whose aim is to prevent them from running away and falling victim to sexual exploitation!

The creation and implementation of SHINE was made possible thanks to a substantial grant by an anonymous donor, as well as a generous contribution by the Air Canada Foundation. This initiative has allowed us to visit more than 150 schools and increase the personal safety of over 15,000 youths!

If you would like for your child’s school to participate in this unique and educational program, available in both English and French, to schools all across Quebec, please contact Cynthia Patenaude at 514 843-4333 or c.patenaude@reseauenfantsretour.ong

On Valentine’s Day back in 2007, Philippe Lajoie (23 years-old) vanished without a trace from the family farm located in Saint-Didace (Lanaudière).

Sadly, twelve years later, his family longs to know what happened to their son.

With your help, we can give the family the gift of closure. Thank you for sharing Philippe’s poster.
