Every year, 600.000 people go missing in Europe. Half of whom are children. It is our mission to change this. #ZeroMissingKids

Get to know us

We connect law enforcement with other police experts, the public, NGOs and businesses across Europe in the search for and the protection of missing children.

Our mission

Even though the number of children that go missing in Europe every year is staggering, missing is still ‘missing’ on the EU agenda. We want to change this with our Common European Approach on Missing Children and Missing Persons (CEA), a European-wide strategy supported by 4 pillars.

Check Before You Chat

We challenged TikTokers around the globe to do a simple five-step dance to a love song. Seems harmless, right?

Wrong. With this #5StepChallenge, we want to make you aware of the dangers of online grooming and how you can easily miss the signs. That is why it’s so important to always #CheckBeforeYouChat.
