Missing Children Europe – Figures and Trends 2021 from hotlines for missing children and cross-border family mediators

Every year at least two hundred and fifty thousand children go missing in Europe. Due to the lack of comparable official statistics on missing children, it is difficult to grasp the full scope of the issue or what are the current reasons why children go missing. That is why, since 2014, Missing Children Europe collects and analyses data from the hotlines for missing children and the network of cross-border family mediators.
