Missing Children Europe / MCE

250,000 children are reported missing in Europe every year, 1 child every 2 minutes. Missing Children Europe is the European federation for missing and sexually exploited children. We represent a network of 31 NGOs in 27 countries in Europe. We provide the link between research, policies and organisations on the ground to protect children from any kind of violence, abuse or neglect that is caused by or results from them going missing. Runaways, parental abductions and missing children in migration made up to 85% of missing children cases reported to hotlines in Europe, but awareness and child protection responses for these vulnerable categories of missing children and their families is still lacking. Data from the dedicated European hotline for missing children active in 32 countries also reveals that up to 19% of all cases involve a cross-border element. The issue of missing children is not confined to national borders and therefore requires European support structures and policies to effectively tackle the real issues surrounding why children go missing.
