600 hundred children missing in UK since May 2007

Many “have no parents to launch an appeal, few have gained media attention and none on the scale devoted to the McCann case.” From the 9,000 children missing since May 2007, in UK, 600 hundred were not yet found, according to The Independent.

“The biggest UK charity dealing with missing children said that the families of all the children who have gone missing in the past six months were suffering ‘agony and a sense of not knowing’. Paul Tuohy, chief executive of Missing People, added: ‘In the UK each year 140,000 children are reported missing. We cannot forget these other young people and their families who are also left in limbo."
