Summary:
Written by parents and family members who have experienced the disappearance of a child, this guide contains their combined advice concerning what you can expect when your child is missing, what you can do, and where you can go for help. The first chapter focuses on the search for a missing child and explains how a parent can best participate in the search. Chapter 2 discusses parents' relationship with law enforcement and offers tips that will facilitate effective cooperation. The third chapter examines issues related to the media, including media packages, press conferences, and interviews; and chapter 4 offers suggestions for producing fliers about a missing child and for managing the photo and flier distribution process. The next chapter addresses the many uses of volunteers, both trained and untrained, to help in the search and to provide for the needs of the family. Chapter 6 discusses the use of rewards and the management of monetary donations, followed by a chapter that emphasizes the need for parents to take care of their own needs, the needs of their children, and members of the extended family.
