Missing child clearinghouses are required to track cases of missing children (adults as well in some states) and to provide resources to missing children, searching families, law enforcement and and related professionals. However, all clearinghouses do not offer the same resources. Consequently parents and caregivers should contact their clearinghouse to find out what assistance is available. If a child has gone missing to another state, then parents and caregivers should also contact the clearinghouse in that second state in an effort to determine additional services that may enhance the search effort.

Currently all 50 states and the District of Columbia have missing child clearinghouses.
