Operation Found Safe is an organization whose mission is to educate and train communities on how to protect children from abduction, exploitation and human trafficking by working closely with families and law enforcement by assisting in the search & location of missing children throughout the U.S. so that they can be “Found Safe”. Operation Found Safe is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
WHY WE ARE NEEDED:
Over 2,100 children go missing a day equaling approximately 800,000 reported missing every year reports the United States Department of Justice. As many as 2.8 million children run away each year in the United States. Within 48 hours of hitting the streets, one-third of these children are lured or recruited into the underground world of prostitution and pornography according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Operation Found Safe consists of a network of licensed investigators & volunteers who donate their time & dedicate their services to help find missing and endangered children. Operation Found Safe is dedicated to the families & serves each with respect, compassion, communication & understanding throughout their turmoil. Operation Found Safe's services are offered free of charge to the parents of missing children ages 11 to 16 that are missing within 120 days.
Our ultimate goal is to have a state operator & field representatives in every one of the 50 states to coordinate the volunteer efforts of licensed investigators for the sole purpose of locating missing children to make sure they safely get back home to their families.
