    Best of luck with your search.

    Child Identification Kit

    Do you have a Child Identification Kit for each of your children? Do you know how to keep it updated? If you answered no to any of the questions in this post; see the link below to get started. PHOTO RECOMMENDATION: Children under the age of one year should be photographed every 2 months. After the first year and until the age of 7, a photograph should be taken every six months. Seven years until age 18, a yearly photograph is suggested. Updated photos may be placed inside a plastic storage bag. Do you know the location & type of any distinguishing birthmarks, moles, scars, previously broken bones & prosthetics? Do you know how to collect & store DNA of your kids in case of emergency?

    On the left; under services; see Child ID and DNA Kit Orange County CA Sheriff's Department

    This should be a direct link to the PDF file Child ID and DNA Kit

    Kits can also be ordered for under $10 from National Child I.D. Program

    Also see National Child I.D. Program FB page for tips

    Complete the DNA evidence gathering in the comfort of your home. This will ensure you have a good sample and allow the necessary time for drying in a sterile-type environment.

    • Take the Q-Tip and rub firmly, but gently on the inside of the child’s cheek. The idea is to collect cells, not saliva.

    • Take the Q-Tip and place it upright in a container (The idea is to let the air circulate around the Q-Tip until it is completely dry. One method is to invert a paper cup and stick the non-swabbed end through the end of the cup).

    • Do NOT touch the Q-Tip!

    • Let the Q-Tip dry for 24 hours.

    • The DNA sample does not need to be redone as long as it is kept completely dry.

    • Remove the Q-Tip from the container and place in a paper envelope. Place that envelope and this sheet into a plastic freezer or storage bag.

    • Safe places for storage of the bag include a fireproof box or the freezer compartment of the refrigerator. (Do not place in a safe deposit box at a bank or other facility, as the goal is easy accessibility).

    PHOTO RECOMMENDATION: Children under the age of one year should be photographed every 2 months. After the first year and until the age of 7, a photograph should be taken every six months. Seven years until age 18, a yearly photograph is suggested. Updated photos may be placed inside a plastic storage bag with this sheet and the DNA swab.

    Be sure to print out the Child ID form to make note of all birth marks; scars; broken bones & tattoo's

    Can easily be used for adults as well

    In the Lost & Found
    2ND AUGUST 2013

    'IN THE LOOP' Booklet
    This is a very special Resource Publication which has just been released for Young People who have had someone close to them go Missing.

    “In the Loop reflects the thoughts and experiences of young people, how they cope with their loss and how they want to be treated during this difficult time,”

    “A recurring theme when the booklet was being developed was that young people don’t want their families to ‘protect them’ by withholding information or leaving them out of discussions about the disappearance.”

    “In the Loop includes colourful artwork which powerfully demonstrates how the reassuring comments of adults are received by young people dealing with the confusion and uncertainty surrounding a disappearance.

    “The young people involved in the meetings have contributed most of the content and illustrations in the book, with the support of their carers, the FFMPU and two social work students from the University of NSW,”

    Are you the family member or friend of a long-term missing person in the New York City area?

    You are invited to New York City Missing Persons Day on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

    The first-ever New York City Missing Persons Day connects all New Yorkers with the resources to help identify and find their long-term missing loved ones. Families and friends of long-term missing persons (missing for 60 or more days) will have direct access to interviews with professionals and the opportunity to provide information to aid in identification. Emotional and spiritual support services will also be available on site to all attendees.

    All are welcome. Families and friends who wish to have an interview are strongly advised to schedule in advance by calling (212) 323-1201. Callers will be advised on what information to bring. Providing information is voluntary. Information will be used for identification purposes only.

    When: Saturday, November 8, 2014
    9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

    Where: NYC Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) – Hirsch Building
    421 East 26th Street (at 1st Avenue)
    New York, NY 10016

    Why: More than 13,000 people were reported missing in New York City last year, with some, including at least 200 children, missing long term. Nationwide, there are more than 87,000 active missing persons cases, while there are tens of thousands of unidentified persons for whom little to no information is entered into national databases. New York City has been conducting a comprehensive review of all the unidentified persons in its custody using new advances in technology, but new technology can only go so far. Identifications cannot be made unless adequate information about missing persons is available for comparison.

    Who: Hosted by OCME, in partnership with the NYPD Missing Persons Unit, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, American Red Cross, and Disaster Chaplaincy Services, with support from the NYC Office of Emergency Management, NYC Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Center for HOPE, and the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), and assistance from the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit and the Mayor’s Office for International Affairs.
