New missing children unit created

The team of experts, the first of its kind in the UK, will be established within the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (CEOP) — the organisation responsible for protecting children from sex abuse.

The unit will work alongside police forces and other agencies to provide a stronger focus on tracking down missing youngsters.

It will take over responsibility from missing children from the national missing person’s bureau.

It is estimated some 360,000 people go missing each year, of which around two thirds — or 230,000 — are children.

Earlier this month it emerged that Scotland Yard is to review the Madeleine McCann investigation.

Speaking on International Missing Children's Day, James Brokenshire, the minister for crime and security said: “The risks children are exposed to are severe and the harm they suffer can be very serious so it is crucial we can act quickly.
"CEOP's new responsibility for national missing children's services means they can bring their significant child protection expertise to tackle this important issue."
Lady Catherine Meyer, Parents & Abducted Children Together (PACT), said:
" For the first time in the UK there will be a single national centre, bringing together in one place the resources and expertise of government, police, NGOs and the private sector.
"These changes also send a strong message that crimes against children will not go unpunished and that this government takes children's issues very seriously".

A new specialist police unit is to be set up to help track down the 230,000 children who go missing every year.

Yet again these misleading figures.
230,000 children go missing every year.
NO they don't. They are reported missing and 229,900 are back home by tea time.
The other 100 come home in the early morning, having spend the night with their boyfriends.

Let us be told the total of children missing ( not abducted by a parent from another jurisdiction) at the end of each year.
The problem is that the number is so small that it is not a problem. Just an individual localised tragedy, and will not justify a huge bureaucracy to manage it.

In what way is it not a problem?

It is a problem on a local scale. It is not a problem on a national scale. The real numbers of children who are 'never seen again' is infinitesimally small, even nationally. So small that it is inappropriate to set up a huge bureaucracy collating details and figures on every child who is late home from school. It will add a tier of reporting and paperwork which is entirely useless.

Interpol data bank 10th January 2009
Missing children in the European Union approx. 100. In the west European countries i.e. Belgium, Germany,France,Greece,UK,Ireland,Lux,Holland,Portugal and Spain approx. 60. This means a maximum of 5 to 6 for each country

Germany pop. 80mill. + 2 cases
Italy pop. 60mill. 5 cases
Portugal pop. 10mill. 3 cases
Spain pop. 40mill. 12 cases
Belgium pop. 10mill. 4 cases

In the years 2004-2008 there were across Europe 5 cases of Children under the age of 6 disappearing , two in Spain, 2 in France and 1 in Belgium, there are no similarities with the disapppearence of Madeleine Mccann, 4 of the missing Infants are male, these figures are part of the breakdown from the book written by the psychologist Daniela Prousa
