Nevada Child Seekers was founded in 1985 to fill a serious void in the growing communities of Nevada. A critical need existed then and has increased with the tremendous growth of Nevada's population, to help coordinate, search for and locate missing, runaway, and abducted children. The Nevada Child Seekers' mission is to locating missing, abducted and runaway children. Nevada Child Seekers also provides a networking system for the identification of missing children, conduct crisis intervention for parents and children, sponsor education and prevention programs, hold weekly victim family support groups and, most importantly, aides in the location of missing and abducted children.
