In 2012, the RCMP's National Missing Children Operations took on 170 cases. Thirty of these remain unsolved.
May 25 was National Missing Children's Day across the country. Created in 1983, it raises awareness about children who are still missing, how they might still be found safely, and the reasons for their disappearances.
In 2011, police filed 25 reports of abductions by strangers, compared to 145 reported abductions by parents. Seventy-one per cent of all missing children reports are runaway situations, and teens aged 14 and 15 make up 45 per cent of all reports.
This year, National Missing Children Operations is presenting nine longstanding active cases of children who disappeared across Canada and have not yet been found. They have provided a photo of each child as they looked when they disappeared, and an age-progressed image of how they might look today.
