There is no feeling more terrifying than not knowing the whereabouts of your child. According to data from MissingKids.org, there were 128 cases of missing children reported in Idaho in 2021. That's an average of a bit more than 2 children going missing every week. According to MissingKids.org, that number jumps higher in neighboring states, Oregon and Washington where the totals are 500 and 1,038 reports respectively.
According to MissingKids.org, Montana had 26 total reports filed for missing children while Wyoming had 19. South of Idaho, Nevada reported 345 cases while Utah reported 165.
One of the keys to combating some of the issues behind missing children is knowledge. The website for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has great resources for parents when discussing abduction prevention with their kids.
These include "Do's & Don'ts" as well as ways for your child to see through the sinister tricks predators pull on kids. I highly recommend you check this out, regardless of how old your children are. Knowledge is power.
