Recent statistics show that every year eight million children disappear in the world and that the main risks for them are ending up in the hands of unscrupulous people who abuse and control. Colombia is a country affected by this phenomenon due to the presence of guerrillas, poverty and criminal gangs that exist throughout the territory that have links with others in the world.

In Colombia, 2020 left an average of 4 minors missing per day. In total there were 1,579 minors, 811 appeared alive and there is no information about the remaining 758. According to Forensic Medicine reports, in 2019 there were 2,392 missing minors, but the reduction was due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, not due to protection measures by the State.

In the world there are different help and support networks for families and minors who suffer or suffered from this scourge of life. Colombia is part of different organizations with the coordination of the Alliance for Colombian Children for a Childhood at Home. The oldest and largest organization is SOS Children's Villages, which has a presence in 135 countries, others are Agencia PANDI, Children International and Fundación CINDE among others that work in different sectors to help minors and the affected population around them.

Commitment to minors

One of the international organizations that helps and provides a service to find missing children in the United States and the world is the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children located in the United States. Collaboration with the community, police, families and private industry allows us to prevent kidnappings, recover children and provide services to deter and combat child exploitation.

¨All children deserve a safe childhood¨ is the National Center slogan which Encounters VIP shares and for which it wants to invite all people to contribute from the knowledge of this reality. In international and national organizations there is documentation to be aware of how to proceed in the event of a disappearance, and a point that is repeated is, it is not necessary to wait between 24 and 48 hours to report the disappearance of the minor, if the entire The minor's behavior indicates that it is something abnormal, so he or she must report it to the authorities so that the search and help mechanisms are immediately activated.

The causes related to disappearances can arise from the family nucleus itself.

  1. One of the parents takes the minor, even out of the country without the permission of the other.

  2. The minor voluntarily leaves home, foster family or institution.

  3. Kidnapping by strangers which may be to ask for ransom or to use the minor in child exploitation, illegal adoption networks, child labor and even sale of organs.

  4. Due to natural disasters.
