Each & Every Day 2300 MISSING CHILDREN.....

...... are reported to local police and entered into the Federal Bureau 
of Investigation's (FBI) National Crime Information Center Computer

   These numbers are at an epidemic level. We at CulinaryClassics are
trying to help in the efforts to end this epidemic and to help at least
some of these missing children to be returned home where they should 
be, with their families.

  It is for this reason that we have added this page to our website. 
Please take a moment to look at some of the pictures of missing children
provided here and if you have any information on any of these missing
children, PICK UP THE PHONE and call 1-800-THE-LOST so these children
can be returned home to their families.

  If you have a website of your own and would be willing to share a page
to aid in this effort as CulinaryClassics has, email me and I will let
you know how.......
Thank you,
Roger A. Young, Jr., owner

Can You Help Me Get Home???

Some Information on NCMEC............

   As the nation's resource center for child protection the National
Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) spearheads national 
efforts to locate and recover missing children and raises public 
awareness about ways to prevent child abduction, molestation, and sexual
exploitation. A private, nonprofit organization established in 1984,
NCMEC operates under a Congressional mandate and works in conjunction
with the US Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and 
Delinquency Prevention.
   'NBC Nightly News' referred to NCMEC as a "high-tech search network."
NCMEC is a vital resource for families and the approximately 17,000
law enforcement agencies throughout the United States in the search for
missing children and the quest for child protection.
   Since 1984, NCMEC has handled more than 1.1 million calls through its
national hotline 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678); trained more than 
145,000 police and other professionals; and published more than 14
million publications that are distributed free of charge in single 
copies. NCMEC has worked with law enforcement on more than 57,700 
missing child cases, resulting in the recovery of more than 38,868
   NCMEC has disseminated millions of missing children's photographs, with
one in seven of the children recovered as a direct result. NCMEC believes
that "somebody knows where each missing child is located," and seeks to
reach every home with these photographs.
   NCMEC receives thousands of leads on missing children that are 
forwarded to police investigators. NCMEC also operates the national child
pornography tipline in conjunction with the US Customs Service, the US
Postal Inspection Service, and Federal Bureau of Investigation that has
produced leads resulting in many successful investigations.
   Whether a police officer needs case assistance, desperate parents are
seeking help to find their child, or a citizen is asking for information
on child safety, all it takes is one call, to the High-Tech Search
Network of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, at
1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
