MSN Causes: Empowering our readers to help missing children in May

Microsoft News 5/10/2018

May 25th is National Missing Children's Day, so throughout the month, as part of our ongoing MSN Causes series, we're examining the issue of Missing Children and contributing to the effort to reunite them with their families. There were some 465,000 children reported missing in the US in 2016 alone, and in Canada, 47,000 kids went missing in 2017 (read more here).

The global figures are more staggering. Going beyond the common image of playground abductions and kidnappings, our carefully-curated report looks into even more pervasive aspects of the issue, such as online luring, parental abductions, runaways and human trafficking. 

You can learn how to protect the children in your life, submit tips, and connect with organizations like the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children that are working to bring kids home. You can also read about how Microsoft facial recognition technology and cloud-based tools are helping families find answers. 

We may all be “just one person”, but as an MSN reader, you’re part of a community that’s 140 million strong. So we hope you’ll join us in coming together for a very good Cause.
