National Missing and Exploited Children’s Day

National Missing and Exploited Children’s Day
Posted on 05/24/2022
The New Hope City Council recently proclaimed May 25, 2022, as National Missing and Exploited Children's Day in the City of New Hope. National Missing Children's Day is dedicated to encouraging parents, guardians, caregivers and others concerned with the well-being of children to make child safety a priority. The commemoration serves as a reminder to continue efforts to reunite missing children with their families and honor those dedicated to this cause.

President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25, 1983, the first National Missing Children's Day in memory of Etan Patz, a 6-year-old boy who disappeared from a New York City street on his way to his school bus on May 25, 1979.

Education and awareness can help reduce the incidences of missing and exploited children. The New Hope Police Department encourages adults to take the time to talk to the children in their lives about child safety. Resources to help guide the conversation are available on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website at
