“I hope you’ve lived the best life ever” | Messages to missing children

To kick off Find Every Child Week 2022, we are sharing some messages from the loved ones of long-term missing children. 

Fortunately, 90% of children are found within 48 hours. But for those whose loved ones haven’t returned, the pain has never stopped.

We asked the families of long-term missing children: ‘What do you want to tell your missing loved one?’.

Watch the video below to hear their powerful responses…
