Long-term missing people on the NCMEC who have no AP done

(By “long-term” I mean at least three years missing. And I don’t count family abduction cases that don’t have an AP but do have recent photographs.)

(Wow, there were a lot more of these than I thought. It took hours, spread over two days, to compile this.)

For most of these, I don’t know the reason why there’s no AP. In some cases I do know or can guess. I read in an article that Kamiyah Mobley’s parents refused to give the NCMEC permission to have an MP done. Some of these people, although they’ve been missing a very long time, haven’t been on the NCMEC site for terribly long, and may get an AP done later. A few of these posters were actually made by state missing children centers, whose posters are never as good as the NCMEC ones. (Poor George Barksdale for instance, his photo is of such poor quality, he looks like a space alien.) With some of the international family abduction cases, I figure they basically know where the child is at and just can’t retrieve them, so they don’t need an AP made. For the others I have no idea. A paucity of information to go on cannot explain it, and neither can a strong presumption of death; there are several NCMEC cases where one or the other is a factor but they still have APs.

Heroes for missing children

This out of Pakistan: a barber who has made it his mission to reunite lost children with their families. Anwar Khokar says that since 1988 he’s helped 8,500 missing children. Missing children are a big problem in Pakistan — as they are, I suspect, in all third world countries. Kids run away or are thrown out by families who can’t afford to keep them. Child trafficking goes on. And the police often can’t help. If they’re not simply corrupt, they have a lot of other problems on their plate.

I recently read a book called The Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal. This American guy went to volunteer at an orphanage in Nepal for a few months and discovered that all of the “orphans” had in fact been stolen from their families by child traffickers. So he decided to reunite them, and journeyed to an extremely remote region of Nepal (without even road access) to find their parents. And he founded a non-profit for this purpose. It was dangerous work — the child traffickers were often well-connected and powerful, and there was the business of having to trek through the Himalayas — but the looks on the parents’ and kids’ faces made it all worth it for him.
