In 1983 America’s 40th president Ronald Reagan declared May 25 as National Missing Children’s Day.  The story goes back to 1979, when Etan Patz, a 6 year old kid from New York City, went missing on May 25. He was last seen on his way to the bus stop… Father of Etan, Stanley Patz, tried really hard to find his son by distributing photo’s of his son all over the city. This search also generated quite a media buzz but unfortunately Etan was never found…

Americans have been commemorating this meaningful day to draw attention to all missing children cases and educated the public about this sensitive topic.
