Summary

This document provides witness testimony and prepared statements from the Congressional hearing called to determine if the federal government, through the proposed legislation, can help in locating missing children and in assisting their families. The text of H.R. 4971 is given and is followed by statements from directors and representatives of various missing children organizations, an investigative reporter, and law enforcement personnel involved in missing children investigations. The need for national pooling of information; federal leadership, direction, and coordination in dealing with missing children; and federal assistance to now-fragmented state and local services are emphasized. The need for education is stressed and federal efforts to train and educate police officers, assist and counsel parents, collect data, and educate children on how to resist child molesters and abductors are considered. Ideas for involvement of the private sector are suggested. A guide to prevent abduction, pamphlets from organizations concerned with missing children, and numerous newspaper and magazine articles related to the topic of missing children are contained in the appendix.
