Today is National Missing Children’s Day

Press release from Florida Department of Law Enforcement

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today is National Missing Children’s Day, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is highlighting Florida’s statewide Missing Child Alerts. FDLE also reminds the public to opt in to receiving the potentially life-saving Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on their mobile devices.

The WEA notifications are especially important for reaching the public during the summer months when families are busy with out-of-school activities or on vacation and may see something in their surroundings that may help save a life.

FDLE Commissioner Mark Glass said, “We never give up our efforts to bring our missing kids home, and information provided by the public is often instrumental in helping us. I urge you to keep the wireless emergency alerts on your cellphones turned on because these are shown to save lives. When you see an alert, please take a moment to review the cases and call 911 or the phone number listed on the flyer when you have information that may help bring these children home.” 

Citizens can help find these still missing children.

Isabella Travieso, missing from the Miami, Florida area since April 27, 2023. The Miami-Dade Police Department is the investigating agency.

Jessica Beatriz, missing from the Sanford, Florida area since November 4, 2006. The Sanford Police Department is the investigating agency.
