Attorney General Long Reminds South Dakotan of Missing Children’s Day
PIERRE, S.D. - Attorney General Larry Long is asking South Dakotans to observe National Missing Children’s Day on Thursday, May 25, 2006. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has dedicated this annual event for missing children since 1983.
"This day serves as a reminder of how we should continue to commit both community and law enforcement efforts to prevent child abduction," said Long. "I am also reminding parents and guardians to keep an up-to-date photo of their child available at all times in case of an emergency. In the event that a child is abducted a current photo is an invaluable tool for law enforcement." If you need any additional information about National Missing Children’s Day call the National Center’s toll-free hotline, at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
