Missing Children

In the crucial moments after a child goes missing, every second counts. The National Child Protection Task Force (NCPTF) is dedicated to closing the gap between the moment a child is reported missing and their safe recovery. Leveraging expertise, technology, and a strong network of partners, we turn every stone to bring them home swiftly.

Our mission is to ensure that law enforcement has the resources & support needed to act swiftly and effectively each time a child goes missing.

We quickly analyze data, leverage partners and technology, and provide leads that traditional methods can miss. We offer real-time support to law enforcement to help ensure no child's case goes cold due to a lack of resources.

A Thanksgiving Miracle: On a quiet night before Thanksgiving, a family’s world turned upside down when their 14-year-old daughter vanished. Within hours of NCPTF’s engagement, the team identified and located the suspect 12 hours away from the girl’s home. Remarkably, the time from initial NCPTF engagement to victim location was only three hours. The young girl was rescued by local authorities and reunited with her family just in time to celebrate the holiday, turning despair into gratitude.

A Network of Support Makes the Difference: A 13-year-old girl from Grand Island, NY, disappeared, leaving behind her factory-reset phone. Utilizing the advanced investigative skills taught by NCPTF, investigators identified the suspect in less than 24 hours. Despite the involvement of multiple law enforcement agencies, the investigators credited the skills learned from NCPTF as the reason the girl was recovered in under 24 hours.

NCPTF’s response to Meta’s rollout of end-to-end encryption

On December 6, 2023, Meta, the parent company of the popular social media platforms Facebook and Instagram, announced it would enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE) as the default setting on Facebook and Messenger. The National Child Protection Task Force (NCPTF) is dismayed and disappointed by Meta’s decision.
