Majority of missing children turn up in matter of hours

Majority of missing children turn up in matter of hours
4/6/2011
A total of 766 youngsters between the ages of 12 and 18 went missing in Portugal in the first four months of 2011, the Portuguese Missing Children’s Association (APCD) said on the eve of International Missing Children’s day.


A large majority are found or come back of their own free will within a few hours

The APCD also knows of at least 53 children under 12 years old who have disappeared since the beginning of the year.

Most missing children in Portugal over 12 run away for short periods of time, often repeatedly, from care centres or are taken away by one of their parents during turbulent divorce proceedings.

Most of the missing children under 12 have either already been found, ran away from institutions or were last seen with members of their family.

Only two children on the APCD site are thought to have disappeared in suspicious circumstances since 1999, the most famous of whom is Madeleine McCann, who went missing in the Algarve in 2007. TPN/Lusa

MADELEINE BETH MCCANN
The McCanns know very well that she is not missing
The Truth will whisper to the world and all those involved in the crime against the child will be named and justice will be served



Rosa I have deleted one sentence from above post, you cannot make that statement as fact!

And this is why the 'statistics' on missing children are so dangerous unless you interpret and understand them.
Most children reported missing are not. They know perfectly well where they are, it is only the parents who have lost contact.
Most of them are playing with their friends, or watching TV, or when they get a bit older are with boy or girlfriends and have lost track of the time.
Every report has to be recorded by the police, and someone adds them all up at the end of the year to make a newspaper headline.

I once tried to get a ballpark figure for missing people/missing children in the US.

Impossible, everyone comes up with his own statistics. Fact is though that there are much more children that indeed are permanently missing.
