National Missing Children's Day


In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 as National Missing Children's Day. Each year, the U.S. Department of Justice commemorates the day with a ceremony honoring the heroic and exemplary efforts of agencies, organizations and individuals to protect children.

Missing Children’s Day is dedicated to encouraging parents, guardians, caregivers and others concerned with the well-being of children to make child safety a priority. It serves as a reminder to continue our efforts to reunite missing children with their families and an occasion to honor those dedicated to this cause.

To help promote Missing Children’s Day and take strides to help protect Apache Junction’s children, the Apache Junction Police Department will hold a Child ID event at the Apache Junction Public Library on June 1, from 10 a.m. to noon. Child fingerprints and photographs will be taken and child safety information will be available at no cost. National Missing Children's Day serves as an annual reminder in renewing efforts to reunite missing children with their families while making child protection a national priority.

For further information on National Missing Children’s Day or the child safety event, please contact the Community Resource Coordinator at (480) 474-5442 or
