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.

 

At the request of the Sûreté du Québec, the Missing Children’s Network is requesting your collaboration in the search for Fannie Rancourt, 16 years-old last seen January 21, 2020 in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
