National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) collaborates with FEMA to support the reunification of children under 21 years of age with their parent or legal guardian. Individuals reporting or searching for a child missing as a result of a disaster should call the NCMEC National Emergency Child Locator Center (NECLC) at 1-866-908-9570 or 1-877-908-9570. NECLC is only activated at the request of a State to support Presidentially-declared disasters.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children maintains the Unaccompanied Minors Registry (UMR), the nation’s first national repository created to collect, store, report, and act on information related to children separated from their parent or legal guardian as a result of disaster. Reports to the UMR are received directly by the NCMEC’s 24/7 call center staff. Individuals can log on to the Unaccompanied Minors Registry (UMR). The registry is available for utilization 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
