A rather shocking statistic to any parent it has been reported that almost 800,000 kids go missing each year in the United States. That works out to almost 2000 kids per day. We were stunned here when we hear that statistic.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States -- that's roughly 2,000 per day. Of those, there are 115 child "stranger abduction" cases each year, which means the child was taken by an unknown person. In this day and age you really need to keep tabs on your children to keep them safe form predators.
