Many of the children on the FBI’s Kidnappings & Missing Persons webpage have been missing for months or years. In recognition of National Missing Children’s Day—held every year on May 25—take a look at the faces of the missing children seen here and contact law enforcement if you have any information that might bring them home to their families.

National Missing Children’s Day is also a reminder of the importance of being prepared should the unthinkable ever happen to your child, and one thing parents can do is to download or update their children’s information in the FBI’s Child ID app. The app, available free for both iPhones and Androids, allows parents to keep updated photos and physical descriptions of their children available on their smartphones.

If your child goes missing, you can quickly send the information to authorities. (The FBI does not collect or store the information or photos you enter into the app. The data resides on your mobile device unless you choose to send it to authorities in an emergency.)
