How parent can prevent their child from going missing:

Never take your eyes off your children. It’s easier said than done, but to always have your eyes on your kids is the most basic form of protection you could give them. House chores tend to distract us, but we should not let it take our attention for a significant amount of time.

Young children, with intense curiosity about the world around them and eagerness to explore, can be the ultimate escape artists. When you’re shopping, at an amusement park, or otherwise out in a crowd, keep your eyes on your child at all times. If your child is prone to wandering off, it is best if someone in the family keeps constant physical contact, like holding hands.

At School or Camp. When choosing a school, child care facility, or camp, ask about security measures in and around areas children learn and play. These include secure doors and gates, and policies that ensure only a parent, guardian or someone designated in advance can pick up your child.

Other Care Providers. When hiring babysitters, always check multiple references and ask for recommendations from friends and family members. A reliable childcare provider should never leave the children alone in the house or yard–even for a minute.

Stranger Things. Talk with children about the trusted adults in their life who help keep them safe, and what to do when they encounter someone they don’t know. Teach them never to get into a car or go along with someone unfamiliar to them—even if the stranger is asking if they might know the “lost puppy” in their car. Practice with your child to forcefully say “no!” and move away as fast as possible, loudly yelling for help.

Safe Zone. Your child should know to always tell you about being approached by a stranger―even if someone said they would hurt him or her, or you, if he or she told. Let your child know he or she will not be in trouble, and you will protect him or her from harm.
