Child Recovery Program

Since 1985, the Missing Children’s Network provides frontline services to families whose child has disappeared.

We intervene in all types of disappearances (parental abductions, runaways, criminal abductions, as well as those of unknown circumstances).

With every new case that we register, our experienced Case Workers:

  • Meet with families to reassure them and at the same obtaining all relevant information pertaining to their missing child;
  • Stimulate the investigation by searching for clues, gathering pertinent information and ensuring the proper follow-ups;
  • Provide families with advice and emotional support, as well as facilitating the reunification process.
  • Act as a liaison between the parents and the police;
  • Produce and distribute search notices throughout our vast network of partners, at the local, national and international levels;
  • Partner with the Montreal Police Service, the Sûreté du Québec and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as collaborating with our media contacts upon the issuance of an AMBER Alert;

Since 1985, the Missing Children’s Network has supported or assisted parents, police forces or other members of our network of partners, in the resolution of over 1,480 cases of missing children.

Be vigilant! Sometimes accidents happen to children when we assume that someone else is looking after them. During family gatherings, designate one adult to be in charge of the children. Make sure this person knows exactly what his/her responsibilities are.
Identify the adult in charge! For example, have him wear a colourful and playful accessory such as a hat and then when his supervision duties are over, ask that he pass the hat on to the next person who will take over and so on and so forth!Jouez à la tag!
Soyez vigilant! Parfois des accidents arrivent aux enfants alors que nous croyons que quelqu’un d’autre les surveille. Lors de rassemblements familiaux, désignez un adulte en charge des enfants. Assurez-vous que cette personne sache exactement quelles sont ses responsabilités.
Identifiez l’adulte en charge! Par exemple, faites-le porter un accessoire coloré et amusant comme un chapeau, puis lorsque ses tâches de supervision seront terminées, demandez-lui de passer le chapeau à la prochaine personne qui prendra la relève et ainsi de suite.
