A Brief History...

As proclaimed by Resolution of the Florida Legislature, Florida Statute 683.23, the “first ever” Florida Missing Children’s Day was held on Monday, September 13, 1999.

Each year parents, children, law enforcement officers and citizens gather to remember Florida's missing children who are still missing and those who will never come home again. The Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and FDLE’s Commissioner are invited as speakers.

The objective of this day is to raise awareness of Florida’s currently missing children, to educate the public on child safety and abduction prevention, and to recognize those individuals and law enforcement officers who have made outstanding contributions in the missing children issue.
