The Missing Child Kit

We recommend that you keep the Missing Child Kit in a secure and convenient location you can access quickly in an emergency.

 

Important Information at Hand

Record your child’s name, address, birth date, and any birthmarks or other identifying features that will help authorities identify your child. Include any allergies and all medications your child has.

 

Detailed Physical Description

It is important to know where any of your child's birthmarks, scars, or other identifying marks are, as well as their physical characteristics – height, weight, eye and hair color.

 

Fingerprint System

Missing Child Kit also comes with a chart to fingerprint your child with easy-to-follow instructions.

 

DNA Record

There is also a place to attach whole strands of your child’s hair. Making sure the strands include the roots and follicles means you can provide authorities with a sample of your child’s DNA.

 

Recent Photo of Your Child

Keep a recent photo of your child to help officials easily identify them. Remember to update your child's photo every few months, especially after growth spurts and even hairstyle changes.
