National Missing Children’s Day #nationalmissingchildrensday #danielsday #missingchildrensday

National Missing Children’s Day is May 25th.
It was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1983 to honor the memory of Etan Patz, a 6-year-old boy who disappeared on May 25, 1979.
It’s reminder to prioritize child safety and honors the efforts of agencies, organizations, and individuals dedicated to protecting children.
In the early 1980s, advertisements on milk cartons in the United States were used to publicize cases of missing children.
Their faces appeared on 3 to 5 billion dairy containers across the country.
This practice became obsolete when the Amber Alert system was created in 1996.
The US Marshals have located 225 missing children across the nation with the assistance of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The abduction and murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh led to the creation of America’s Most Wanted. The relentless efforts of his father, John Walsh, and the show’s team contributed to significant changes in legislation and awareness regarding missing children.
