So, the NCMEC is not responsible for its own posters now?

So I called the NCMEC yet again to ask about kids they have listed as missing that don’t appear to be missing, a problem I have experienced repeatedly, and the lady I spoke to said the NCMEC is not, in fact, in charge of their poster database and says law enforcement can add posters at their leisure and that law enforcement has to tell the NCMEC to remove them.

I am somewhat unsure about this because none of the other people I complained to in the past has said this, but perhaps it’s a new policy or something.

She says if I want a kid taken off the NCMEC because they’re not missing anymore I should contact LE myself. This is something I am not willing to do, because it seems to me that the NCMEC ought to take responsibility for the posters that are on their website and have their logo on them, but what do I know?

    Meaghan, it may be something that you pass along to your local U.S. Congress person, since they are part of the Justice Department. They should be constanly checking and reminding Law Enforcement agencies that they need to update their entries and that includes removing these posters. However, if they have NCEMC logo on them, then they need to update or remove them as needed.

      That is a very good idea Patrick. The NCMEC receives significant federal funding; some oversight would be nice.
