Jul 15, 2009 13:24 ET

▪ Call police as soon as possible. Let them assist. The police know how to investigate and they know your area

▪ Don’t get upset when the police want to check your house for the child. Many missing children have been found in their own homes

▪ One parents should remain home in case the child returns or calls

▪ Give the police a list of friends’ phone numbers and addresses. If this is kept on hand it is easier for you

▪ This is when it is extremely important to know the particulars of your child; height, weight, eye colour, clothing, visible marks, scars, missing teeth, etc. An up-to-date photo will be helpful
