National Missing Children's Day

Updated: May 25, 2013 05:39 PM

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, about 800,000 U.S. children go missing every year.

Today marks National Missing Children's Day to try and bring awareness to what is going on and how to keep our kids safe.

Authorities nationwide say it's important for parents to always know where their kids are and who they are with.

"Talk to them about strangers, talk to them about people that look out of place, talk to them about not talking to people at the parks and you know we tell them, if something doesn't feel right, call us, call the police department, let us come check it out, there are a lot of different things they can do, but one of the best things they can do is call us, let us come to that area and let us check out some suspicious activity" says Sergeant Chris Moore, Pittsburg Police Department.

Moore says having an identity kit with your child's fingerprints, height, weight and a current photo can make it easier to quickly locate a missing child.

Free child identification kits in honor of the day will be distributed in Pittsburg next week, thanks to a partnership with Cox Communications and the U.S. Attorney General.

That will be Tuesday May 28, 2013 at the Cox Communications office in Pittsburg, Kansas at 2802 n. Joplin St. from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
