International Missing Children's Day

International Missing Children's Day, 25 May, is a day where people around the world commemorate the missing children who have found their way home, remember those who have been victims of crime, and continue efforts to find those who are still missing. International Missing Children’s Day was first marked in the US in 1983.

The main purpose of International Missing Children's Day is to encourage everyone to think about children who remain missing and to spread a message of hope.

Balloons are the official symbols of International Missing Children's Day. Countries around the world have released balloons for years on this day to commemorate all the children still missing and to celebrate those who've been safely returned home.
