Mission

Founded in 1985, the Missing Children’s Network is a non-profit organization whose mission is to assist parents in the search for their missing child, and to educate the public in order to decrease the occurrence of children disappearing.

Our objectives are
  • To support and counsel families whose child has either been abducted by a stranger or family member or whose youth has run away from home;
  • To collaborate with law enforcement and government agencies in order to locate and recover missing children and return them safe and sound to their families;
  • To aid in preventing the abduction, aggression and exploitation of children and youth;

To sensitize and educate the public about children’s personal safety and the prevention of their disappearances.

Network

The Missing Children’s Network works proactively with families, law enforcement, social-service agencies and other community organizations to assist families in crisis. Our Case Managers provide a support network for child victims and their families and offer assistance with reunification, counselling, referrals, support and crisis intervention services.

The Missing Children’s Network is a recognized partner of the National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, in addition to being an active member of AMECO (Association of Missing and Exploited Children’s Organizations), an international association of reputable non-profit organizations that serve missing and exploited children, their families and law enforcement.

The organization also works closely with Missingkids.ca in providing case management support to francophone families outside of Quebec.

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.
