In 1984, John Walsh co-founded the private, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). NCMEC serves as a focal point in providing assistance to parents, children, law enforcement, schools, and the community in recovering missing children and raising public awareness about ways to help prevent child abduction, molestation, and sexual exploitation. Since its establishment, NCMEC has assisted law enforcement with more than 98,000 missing child cases, resulting in the recovery of more than 83,000 children. In addition, NCMEC has created a sophisticated network that is capable of distributing images and information about missing child cases instantly across the country.
