About the Holiday

National Missing Children's Day is held on the anniversary of when a six year old New York boy named Ethan Patz went missing on his way to school in SoHo in 1979. May 25th was proclaimed as National Missing Children's Day in 1983 by President Reagan. The holiday was created to highlight the problem of child abductions and to educate the public on how to help find missing and exploited kids as well as how to keep children safe.

This link, from titled "Nonfamily Abducted Children: National Estimates and Characteristics" includes many stats.
