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 1,150 cases of missing children.

 

At the request of the Sûreté du Québec, the Missing Children’s Network is seeking your collaboration in the search for 17 year-old Miguel Thibault, last seen back on February 5th in Amos. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
