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.

On January 23, 2005, the lives of Françoise Algier and her entire family changed forever. Her 13 year-old daughter, Mélina, was on her way to Roch-Bourbonnais Park in Farnham to participate in the Winter Festival and was planning to later join her mother at the restaurant. Mélina never made her way to the Festival and has never been seen since.

Fifteen years after her disappearance, Melina’s family still clings to the hope that one day she will return home. Thank you for helping us keep hope alive for Mélina and her family.Le 23 janvier 2005, la vie de Françoise Algier et de sa famille a basculé. Sa fille Mélina Martin, alors âgée de 13 ans, devait se rendre au parc Roch-Bourbonnais de Farnham pour participer au Festival d’hiver et la rejoindre au restaurant plus tard en soirée. Mélina ne s’est pas rendue au Festival et n’a jamais été revue depuis.

Quinze ans après sa disparition, la famille de Mélina s’accroche toujours à l’espoir qu’elle reviendra un jour à la maison. Merci de nous aider à garder l’espoir bien vivant pour Mélina et sa famille.
